On Monday, Chris Swan noticed the American flag flying over Luciano Park was in tatters.
The Staples Class of 1967 graduate went to Westport Hardware to buy a replacement.
Chris is a US Air Force veteran. His father was also a vet.
So was his father-in-law: Sam Luciano.
Yes, the same man — and beloved former Westport chief of police, who died far too young — whose name graces that Saugatuck park.
What a fine way for Chris to honor every Westport veteran.
We can’t all buy American flags today. But we can keep the service of all our veterans in our hearts, all day long.
