A local veteran had a memorable night in the Bronx.
Matt Montgomery, an Elmira Heights native, was honored as the Veteran of The Game at Yankee Stadium tonight in a game against the Boston Red Sox. Montgomery was a sergeant in the United States Army in both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The New York Yankees addressed Montgomery and thanked him for his service to his country. The public address announcement was followed by a nice ovation from fans, teams and personnel at Yankee Stadium. Without question, it was a night that Montgomery and his family will never forget.
