World War II veteran Robert Satter has been selected as this year’s Westport Memorial Day Parade grand marshal, it was announced today.

The announcement was made by William Vornkahl, president of the Westport Veterans Council. The parade will be held Monday, May 26. Satter, 90, volunteered for active duty in November 1942, according to a biography issued with the announcement.

Serving as a radio operator with the 8th Air Force, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and two battle stars and the Air Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters after 25 missions in the European Theater of operations.  All of his missions were flown between February and June 1944 in the thick of the war raging over Europe.

Of the 18 original crews that formed the 732nd Squadron—part of the 453rd bomb group headed by the actor Jimmy Stewart and awarded a presidential unit citation—12 did not survive.
