To all the Veterans who are home today, those that are on duty and those who have made the supreme sacrifice, I salute all of you with my prayers and thoughts for your safety.

This weekend my heart is heavy for my Uncle Peter who died on the beaches of Normandy and my Nephew Victor who was a wounded Vietnam War Veteran who died much to early!

I am so proud of our Middletown Veterans who have chosen the Vietnam Veterans as the theme of Monday's Parade.

I will be marching with pride as a Veteran of the Vietnam War Era and as a City Councilman dedicated to ensuring that we never forget our American Heroes, who contribute so much to our City of Middletown, State and Nation!

Councilman Phil Pessina,(R)
