  • Following the aftermath of the tragic shooting deaths of two firefighters and the injury of two other firemen and one police officer in West Webster, NY, the Augusta VFW Post 6746 and Auxiliary are going to honor members of the Augusta Department of Safety each month.
    The community service project is in honor of Lt. Mike Chiapperini and Thomas Kaczowka, both victims in an ambush shooting on Dec. 24, 2012, and firefighters Joseph Hofstetter and Theodore Seardino, along with police officer John Ritter, who were injured.
    Once a month, the local VFW post and auxiliary plan to honor and thank the Augusta firefighters and safety officers with snacks, drinks, or a meal.
