Veteran Affairs officials say they will establish a new veterans’ cemetery in western New York but the question is where.

According to WGRZ TV in Buffalo, the VA will announce in mid to late December findings on two potential sites. One option is on Walden Avenue in Lancaster, Erie County while the other option is on Main Road in Pembroke, Genesee County.

Veterans groups say there are nearly 100,000 aging veterans in the region.

Currently, the closest national VA cemetery is in Bath in Steuben County.
