They answered when called: Asked for little and got less: And made us poorer for their passing But richer for their sacrifice. In remembering the dead We embrace the living: For we ought to remember Better than we do. Stephen T. Banko III, Vietnam Veteran Western New York honors the courage, sacrifice and devotion to duty and country of its Vietnam veterans. This monument was built with contributions from the community of western New York. Soldier I was that which others did not want to be. I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness...should I fail. I have seen the face of terror, felt the stinging cold of fear, and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love. I have cried, pained, and hoped...but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten. At least someday I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was...a soldier. George L. Skypeck, Vietnam Veteran
