Saluting Veterans

On March 16 at Somers Elementary School, I’ll have the honor of awarding commendations to veterans from Somers, Union and Stafford. I’ve organized a ceremony where veterans who served in America’s armed conflicts will receive the Connecticut Veterans Wartime Service Medal. More than 1,300 veterans throughout the district have been invited. It’s a small gesture, but I’m proud to make it. Anything we can do to honor the men and women who risked their lives in defense of our nation is a worthwhile effort.


  1. I will be honored to attend the ceremony in Somers to receive “The Connecticut Veterans’ Wartime Service Medal” Thank you, Gary March.

  2. On behalf of all the Veterans, and their families who attended the ceremony in Somers on March 16, 2009 I want to say a very heart felt THANK YOU to Penny, Tony, John Wiltsie, and all of those involved in putting together this program.
