CHEEKTOWAGA N.Y. -- After serving her country in World War 2, Helen Jacob came home to western New York and served her community for the next sixty years. Working on behalf of veterans, especially women, Helen Jacob was tireless.
The Woman's Wellness Center at the Buffalo VA hospital was named in her honor. Today, Congressman Brian Higgins, at the request of Helen's family, presented her with six medals earned for serving in the Army.
2 On Your Side photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke was on hand for the presentation.
