It’s time once again for our Hometown Hero, brought to you by Batavia Downs Gaming with help from our friends at WNY Heroes who help us with our nominations every week.  This week, our Hometown Hero is from Buffalo, NY.  It’s United States Marine National Guard Specialist Casey Wisniewski!

Casey’s nomination read:


I want to nominate Casey because ever since he was little he wanted to serve his country. In 2012 he decided to make a change, he was over 350 pounds at the time, ran every day and went to the gym to get where he wanted to be. By the time August 2012 came around he had lost over 150 pounds to enlist and that is what he did. He enlisted active duty. He went to Fort Benning for basic training and Fort Sam Houston to become a medic. Completed everything perfectly, he missed the birth of his first child in July 2013 and eventually was able to meet up at his first duty station in Fort Benning, GA. His next duty station was at Fort Campbell, KY where he served as a medic as well. He moved his family back home to Buffalo, where he is currently serving in the Army National Guard.


This week, we are honored to name Spc Casey Wisniewski our Hometown Hero of the week!
