Our new Veteran's Memorial in the center of Eastford.
State Senator Tony Guglielmo, an Army Veteran joined other Veterans and residents in Eastford for a dedication ceremony on Veterans Day. The town was celebrating the completion of a memorial built in honor of all Veterans living and deceased – who have served their country proudly. The memorial was a tribute made possible by the generosity of the Bowen family and hard work by the community.
"This is truly a wonderful way to honor our veterans," said Sen. Guglielmo. "This is a long time coming. We need to do more to show our vets just how important their service to our country really is.”
In addition to the granite posts and pavers a new flag pole was installed and plaques were unveiled with military insignia etched on them. At night lights will illuminate the site which sits at the center of town.
