A small crowd gathered for Wilton's Veterans Day parade and ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Green on Center Street Friday, Nov. 11. Veterans marched from Wilton Library to the green where Marine Corps Lt. Col. Chris Ladd reflected on the history of the holiday and paid homage to those in uniform today. "We live our lives in Wilton without fear because they are on duty," he said.
Reflecting on a ceremony at Cider Mill School earlier in the morning, state Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) said a veteran there told students "'we need to come back to a country we can be proud of.' That message so resonated with me," she said.
