The theme of sacrifice and service was also underscored by First Selectman Jim Marpe’s speech.
“Service above self; this is the motto of Rotary International, an organization to which I and others in this room belong,” Marpe said. “But these three words also define every person who has work the uniform of our great nation.
“All veterans everywhere, and our military men and women who are on duty now, have sacrificed and deserve our unending thanks for their solemn commitment, their commitment to preserving our democracy and our enduring freedoms,” he added.
Patriotic tunes by American composers filled the auditorium for a half-hour before the service, performed by the Westport Community Band directed by Sal LaRusso.
Some were joyful, others ethereal and introspective, a mood heightened by the placement of the Memorial Wreath below the stage.
What followed were the sounds of three shots from the Westport police honor guard, the clinks of brass casings outside, and the Westport Community Band’s playing of taps.
