Memorial Day: We Remember

The photo below shows the World War II memorial on Veterans Green, across from Westport Town Hall, where a ceremony takes place after today’s parade (approximately 10:30 a.m.). Other monuments there honor veterans of other wars.

World War II is particularly important today. The grand marshal — Battle of the Bulge Purple Heart awardee Ben Pepper — will ride in the parade. His grandson will then read his speech, at Veterans Green.

If you’ve been to a Memorial Day ceremony on Veterans Green, you know how meaningful and powerful it is. If you’ve never been: make this the year.
