The Initiative

Buffalo Medal of Honor Park

Our proposal to rename Columbus Park to Buffalo Medal of Honor Park aims to honor our U.S. Veterans as well as honor the legacy of Sergeant John Basilone who was born in Buffalo, NY in 1916. He was a true, timeless hero who received the Medal of Honor in 1942 for his courage and bravery during World War II. Basilone came from an Italian-American family, so honoring his heroism is the perfect path toward highlighting patriotism in a time where we need it most.
