On November 5, firefighters from the South Line Fire Company, Cheektowaga, NY, saluted Firefighter Gus Buczek and escorted him home from the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Buczek is suffering from pancreatic cancer and was returning home to receive home and hospice care.

Buczek had been profiled seven years ago when the then 54-year-old Marine veteran excelled at a firefighter boot camp.
