Bills founder and Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson’s military medals for his service in the US Navy will be on display in downtown Buffalo beginning this weekend.

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.
