EAST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Veterans were honored in East Haven on Tuesday. They marched from Main Street to the green with local and state officials.
One 95-year-old Marine Corps veteran from Branford says he appreciates all of the support he is given year round.
“I really do appreciate it because no matter where you go, I wear my hat a lot and people come up to me and say thank you for your service, so young people realize that it means a lot to them too,” said John Moore.
Moore went to war with his five brothers. One of the brothers was killed and his remains were recovered some 66 years later.
