The 8th annual Walk of Honor takes place on Sunday in Danbury. 

 

A one-mile walk will follow the ceremony and is rain or shine.  It is mapped out around Rogers Park, but will be held indoors if there's inclement weather.

 

The ceremony will open with the Germantown Ancients Fire and Drum Corps.  An honor guard will be on hand.  The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will lead the Pledge of Allegiance.  A military mom will sing the National Anthem.  The keynote speaker is Lt Col. Patrick Ford who works with Vet Center. 

 

A World War II Marine Corps veteran has been named as this year's recipient of the Warrior Award.  90-year old Anthony Yakacki was wounded on Iwo Jima and one of only four survivors out of his group of 30 Marines. 

 

475 bricks, dedicated to area veterans, now line the walkway leading to the War Memorial.  There are also newly installed pillars.  Local veteran organizations donated money to have these installed to line the walkway.
