60 years ago, soldiers returned home from the Korean War and tomorrow the annual Connecticut Veterans Parade at the state capital will mark the occasion.

 

Nearly 3000 veterans have registered to march.  A local Danbury hero is a Grand Marshall.  Sergeant Samuel Jacobellis is a longtime member of the Greater Danbury Area Korean War Veterans Association.

 

Jacobellis returned from Korea in 1953 having earned a Bronze Star for Valor and Heroism in ground combat.  As a civilian, he's spent the last 40 years working in the auto parts business. 

 

The Parade tomorrow begins near the state Capital complex at 12:30.
