Westport war protesters read names of thousands of fallen soldiers

War protesters in Westport read the names of the more than 3,000 American troops who have been killed in the war in Iraq.Protesters started lining up signs more than a year and a half ago on both sides of this bridge overlooking the Saugatuck River. On Saturday, more than two-dozen protesters armed with new signs say they support the troops, not the war. They say they could go to a booth and vote silently, or write letters without a response, but protesting is the only noticeable thing they can do to get anyone?s attention.Several members of the Westport group, including the World War I veteran Larry Assan say they are anticipating President Bush's new war strategy. They say there's no better way to bring the troops home than to support them.
