Like a true veteran, Ted Diamond keeps serving.
He’s 100 years old. He’s a former Memorial Day parade grand marshal.
And he wants to make sure that every vet — particularly those who, like he, served in World War II — get a chance to participate in the event.
For the past 10 years, he has arranged transportation in the parade. Once again, he’s made sure there are a few cars available, for vets to ride in.
Any veterans wishing to participate next Monday should call Ted (203-227-7680), or e-mail him: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for the rest of us: We’ll line the route, waving and giving our thanks.
