LOCKPORT, NY - On this Veterans Day to honor all who have served, veteran's service groups say there is a lack of veteran's resources in Western New York.
That is despite a growing number of groups like theirs.
Moreover, they predict the need for veteran's services will increase in the coming years.
"Veterans are being served to a point, but some do fall through the cracks," said Philip Arnold, founder and President of Vets H.E.R.D (Helping Empower Returning and Disabled veterans).
Arnold was on hand Monday at the Lockport home of retired Lt. Colonel Edward M. Kolek, as the group presented Kolek with a much-needed Rascal 6000 power chair.
Kolek, 91, spent almost four decades of his life in active military service, including 50 combat missions as a bomber pilot in World War II.
