To the Editor:
In regard to Memorial Day, the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston are pleased to be able to participate in the annual parade. For the Y’s Men participation is quite meaningful, probably due to the age of our members (a majority served in our armed forces).
To us, each year we conceive, design and build a float not to entertain, to win a prize, or promote our club. We feel a sacred obligation to honor our veterans who served our country.
Many died, and all were changed by their military service. Our float is a gift to the community with the hope that spectators might, for just a brief moment, reflect regarding what a great country we share and the debt we owe to those who served.
