NORWALK - A Trumbull woman says she's been fighting for more than a decade to get the proper WWII veterans marker placed at her father's grave at a Norwalk cemetery.

Anna Rizetta says she's been getting the runaround since she buried her dad, Joseph Swiderski, at Riverside Cemetery in 1996.

Rizetta says the dispute involves the cemetery, the funeral home that handled her father and the VA in Washington.

After News 12 Connecticut made a few calls yesterday, Veterans Affairs says it has received the paperwork and the stone should be ready in about a month.
