Together they talked about the meaning of serving our country and the meaning of Memorial Day.
“We must not fall into the trap of looking at Memorial Day or Memorial Day Weekend as the un-official kick off to summer. The time for parties, barbecues and fun with family and friends. Those are all fun, we should enjoy them. I know I will. But as we do that understand that we have the opportunity to enjoy those things in this nation because of the men and women around you and because of those who are no longer with us,” said Commissioner Thomas J. Saadi, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs.
And our very own, Chief Meteorologist Gil Simmons was also there. What a wonderful salute.
