FAIRFIELD — It was a cold morning, but some people still found it important to attend a solemn ceremony in honor of Veterans Day Saturday morning at the Memorial Honor Wall on Town Green.

Comments were kept brief, with a bugler blowing taps and several officials adding their acknowledgement of veterans who have served from this community and the country at large.

“The greatness of America is supported on the sacrifices of our soldiers,” State Sen. Tony Hwang said.
