Description

Description
Inscription on memorial reads: "This Memorial is dedicated to the memory of John A. Boechat, 108th Inf. N.Y.N.G. as representative of the boys from Lafayette High School and this section of Buffalo whose service and sacrifice in the World War 1917-1918, were in the cause of security, liberty and peace. Dauntless you fronted death. For me rests to face life as fearlessly."
