Enfield Veteran’s Award Ceremony to Air on PATV-15

August 4, 2010

The Enfield Veteran’s Award Ceremony hosted by Sen. Kissel to air Fridays at 8:30 pm during August

State Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) today said that PATV-16 would be airing the Enfield Veterans’ Wartime Service Medal Ceremony which was held May 27, 2010 at Enrico Fermi High School. Four hundred veterans were recognized for their service and the auditorium at Fermi was at capacity with over 600 guests in attendance, including veterans and their families. The show will air each Friday evening in August at 8:30 pm.

In 2005, the state legislature created the Connecticut Veterans’ Wartime Service Medal to honor all Connecticut veterans who have served their country. Eligible veterans include members of the military who served in a time of war and were Connecticut residents at the time they were called to active duty, or resident of the state on the date of the award. Medals were also given posthumously for veterans who died on or after January 1, 2000.
