Wilson’s World War II medals will be unveiled to the public on Saturday at 10 am at the Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park near Canalside. His medals are on loan for the next couple of months from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His naval uniform will also be part of the exhibit.

Former Bill Bob Kalsu, who is the only NFL player to make the ultimate sacrifice in the Vietnam war will also have a display at the park. His display will include the Sports Illustrated cover story along with his helmet and playing card.

Wilson and Kalsu are being recognized as part of the Salute to Service events that will run through mid-August at the park.

Kalsu: The whole story

Posted by Chris Brown on May 30, 2011 – 8:15 am

In honor of our fallen heroes on Memorial Day the Bills have one of their own to honor in Bob Kalsu, who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1970 and is remembered on Buffalobills.com today (Monday). But for the most complete story on Kalsu, the man, the athlete and the soldier you need to read this.

Kalsu was the Sports Illustrated cover story back in 2001 and the nine page write up is a must for any Bills fan.

Thanks to all of those today who made the ultimate sacrifice.
