For the last three years, Erie News Now has honored veterans and their families every Thursday night.

This week we are featuring the journey of Chris Kaltenbaugh, a retired U.S. Army Major. Shortly after 9/11, he was deployed overseas.

He served on active duty before taking command of a local reserves unit.

Waterford has been his home for many years, and he was able to watch his children grow academically and athletically.

Chris Kaltenbaugh, thank you for your many years of service.
