New Haven Vietnam Memorial: Solemn ceremony of remembrance

About 40 people gathered at the New Haven Vietnam Memorial on Long Wharf Sunday to honor the memory of those who gave their all to this nation. With respect and solemnity, there were remarks, songs and the laying of wreaths.

Each person who attended was given a red rose and was later invited to place the rose onto the memorial V that contains the names of New Haven residents.

A bell was rung as those names were read.

Here are some of the images from the ceremony.
