Celebrates the induction of Enfield’s Ted Plamondon into the Veteran’s Hall of Fame State

Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) attended the Veteran’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, November 17, at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford to celebrate with Enfield’s Theodore “Ted” Plamondon as he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Mr. Plamondon served in the military for over twenty years and has been involved in his community by serving as Chairman of the Enfield Veterans Council and on numerous other veterans organizations, and by raising funds for the Memorial and Veterans Day celebrations in Enfield for over 50 years.

This year, there were 11 inductees to the Hall of Fame which was created to recognize veterans who had served in the Armed forces and continued serving the community even after their military career formally ended.

“I’ve known Ted for over twenty years, since I first moved to Enfield, and I’m proud to call him my friend. Enfield is a great veterans town with hundreds of great veterans and Ted has worked tirelessly for over half-a-century to help honor each and every one of them.” said Sen. Kissel. “He has done a great deal in Enfield and has certainly made our community a better place to live. It was wonderful to see Ted receive this award and I was honored that he personally invited me to be there.”

Since Governor Rell created the Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame in 2005, forty Connecticut veterans have previously been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
