Veteran's Memorial in Wilton, CT 06897

Veteran's Memorial in Wilton, CT 06897

This photo was taken last fall in November, when the Memorial was finished.   

It is raining today, and so at the moment, I do not have a good picture of what it looks like today.    I will add one later.  I am sure it will be embellished with flags and flowers as they always do here for this holiday.   We have some very significant veterans here, who always try to participate in a big way in town politics and in this Memorial Day celebration.  

David Close is our Grand Marshall this year.   He has always been very active in town affairs, admired by all in town for all he has done,  and remains so to this day.  A wonderful man.

Bill Glass, a 25 year resident of Wilton, CT 06897, is an excellent example of that.  He will be keynote speaker today. 

Working in town, Bill Glass has always felt compelled to be very active in the town's affairs.    Past Pres of the town's Rotary Club, past Presl of the Board of Trustees of Zion's Hill Methodist Church, on the board of the local Red Cross, Past Pres. of the Western Connecticut Military Officers Assoc.,  and member of the American Legion Post 86, which puts together the Memorial Day parade and Veteran's Day observances. 

Bill Glass has been Grand Marshall, master of ceremonies twice, and  is a Navy Veteran.

It is now a cloudy day, not rainy.    It will be glorious if the sun could come out today for this celebration honoring our past and present soldiers.

If the sun comes out, I will post a sunny version of the memorial here later .....
