The 4th of July is not exactly a greeting-card holiday.
But the Westport Fire Department sent this photo — and best wishes — to the town today:
Members of Platoon pose in traditional military green fire t-shirts. They show the department’s patriotism — and honor its many members who are military veterans.
The note says: “The Westport Fire Department asks all citizens to remember in your thoughts and prayers your public servants this 4th of July. Likewise, the members of Platoon 1, who are on duty this July 4th, wish all citizens a safe and blessed holiday.”
Thanks to Platoon 1 — and all of our firefighters — for all they do, for all of us.
