Amherst Army Sergeant Reflects on War and Coming Home

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – The United States Army has been around even longer than the Declaration of Independence. Last week, the oldest military branch celebrated its 232nd birthday. And this week, one local soldier also marks an anniversary. First Sergeant Troy Steward has served for two decades in the army's proud, "boots on the ground" tradition. Steward returned a few weeks ago from active duty in Afghanistan. He talked with WBFO's Joyce Kryszak about his reflections on war and coming home.
