Standing below the Doughboy Monument today, Art Reale said how he felt like his father was looking down on him.

Reale was today’s grand marshal for the annual Westport Memorial Day Parade.

He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and his ship was torpedoed during a trip back to Pearl Harbor on June 21, 1945.

“My father’s name is up there,” Reale said of the statue honoring World War I veterans on Veterans Green. “I feel like he’s looking down on me from the doughboy.”

Save the Children Responding to Earthquake

Westport-based Save the Children is among the agencies responding to a powerful earthquake in Indonesia early today, and it is seeking financial donations.

The magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck about 250 miles east of the capitol, Jakarta, while many were sleeping. Officials estimated nearly 3,000 had died from the disaster, with thousands more injured, and the totals are likely to rise further.

Save the Children officials are concerned because the earthquake struck in the vicinity of Mount Merapi, an active volcano that recently has been sending out large clouds of gas and ash.

A major eruption of the volcano could claim additional lives and greatly complicate relief efforts, they say.
