Gone, but never forgotten.  That statement was evident in the Amherst community Wednesday evening as they honored a fallen American hero.

Staff Sergeant William Wilson III was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan in 2012.

Staff Sergeant Wilson was a 2005 graduate of Williamsville North High School.

Member of the school's Varsity Lacrosse team took the field Wednesday for a special game in his memory. The match began with a flower ceremony for Wilson's family.
