From the flashing of cameras reminding him of muzzle flash to overcrowded spaces, Lockport resident Omarr Hardaway struggles each day as he recalls the horrors he witnessed while serving in the military. But if given a chance, he would do it all over again.

“I will never be the same but I just try to go on with my daily life and be an example for all the other soldiers who are out there,” Hardaway said. “Going to serve my country was the best choice that I ever made.”
