“This is a special day in our house,” says Staples High School graduate, longtime Westporter — and Vietnam veteran — Carl Addison Swanson.
It should be a special day for every American.
It’s not. For many, it’s just another day at work or school.
To remind us of the importance of Veterans Day, Swanson shared a few photos with “06880.”
They span various years, and different branches of the US military.
They show Westporters, and other veterans Swanson knows and admires.
Look carefully at their faces. Wonder about their stories. Appreciate their service.
Most importantly, thank a veteran for his or her service today.
And every day.
