(WTNH)–All across the state, folks are remembering those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Today in Old Saybrook, two ceremonies were held. First, there was a full naval ritual complete with a fly over and rifle salute, followed by a parade to the veterans memorial monuments on Main Street.
Michael Sheehan, a 90-year-old World War II army veteran, attends every year.
“It’s really hard to speak of, and at the same time you have so many memories,” Sheehan said. “So many people that take you back to that aren’t here anymore and its sad. And it’s a wonder how the world has changed since then.”
Sheehan served under General George Patton.
