Group of veterans row on the Norwalk River

Tuesday marked a special day for a team of rowers trying to prove that age is just a number.



Ranging in age from 78 to 96, the team is made up of veterans and their spouses.



They were flanked by flags and family members as they made their way along the Norwalk River.



The rowers live at Atria, which is an assisted living facility in Darien. They were coached by the nonprofit Veterans Rowing and Kayaking.
