NEW HAVEN, CT (Nov. 9, 2019)–About two dozen veterans and friends gathered at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park on Long Wharf Ave. in New Haven, CT, to beautify the five war monuments facing New Haven Harbor.

Thank you to the City of New Haven for providing mums, trash bags, rakes and for taking great care of the V year-round. Elements of the Yale Veterans Network, the American Legion New Haven Post 210, the National Veterans Council for Legal Redress (NVCLR), the SCSU Veterans Association, and the VFW New Haven Post 12150 contributed to the clean-up.

Additional thanks for Chairman Lori Rasile of the Americanism Committee of the American Legion New Haven Post 210 for organizing this twice-annual beautification event.
