Ted Ogonek A salute from a veteran

November 28, 2018

As the grand marshal of this year’s Stamford Veterans Day parade, I wish to express my appreciation for this honor that I received and to thank everyone involved, the Springdale VFW commander Alan Gerard, the Stamford Veteran’s Council and all other veteran groups.

Thank you to the Stamford Police and Fire Department and the Patriotic and Special Events commission.

Thank you to Mayor David Martin for his tribute and for the proclamation plaque and the grand marshal plaque. And thank you to Col. Mark McGrath PSEC, USAF; Col. Archie Elam; and Brig. Gen. Thomas Bouchard, R.I. ANG and all other dignitaries and everyone who came to the parade.

To Congressman James Himes, thank you for your plaque of recognition of my service, and to Erin Kayata and the Stamford Advocate for your reporting, thank you.

Ted Ogonek
