New fairfield airman's named added to Wall of Honor

State officials have held the annual Wall of Honor ceremony at the state capital Thursday.  The wall holds 65 photos of service men and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The latest name added, Air Force Staff Sgt. Todd Lobraico of New Fairfield, was killed at the age of 22 last September. 

 

Lt Governor Nancy Wyman, who helped start the Wall in 2007, hopes each year that no new names have to be added.  She says it's incumbent upon all of us to live in service of their sacrifice and recall in our everyday actions what it means to be an American.  Wyman says the Wall of Honor is a very special tribute to some of this country’s most dedicated protectors.

 

Wyman was joined by Governor Dannel Malloy, Veterans Affairs Commissioner Linda Schwartz, Major General Thad Martin, state officials, and military families to recognize the Connecticut service men and women on the Wall of Honor who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since the terrorist attacks in 2001.

 

Malloy says Connecticut’s Wall of Honor is an important part of the history and future of this state.  He says this wall gives Connecticut residents a place to go to remember the men and women who are not returning from battle, and reflect on the significance of their sacrifice.
