Stratford Senior Services partnered with Bunnell High School, the VFW, Sterling House Community Center, town officials and town first responders this Veterans Day to pull off a free breakfast drive-thru for senior veterans.
Kids, police and firefighters cheered on as the community's senior war heroes lined up in their cars to pick up their meals.
"Veterans are people that to me are the highest class. They served our country, they defended our country and they put their lives on the line," said John Cowan, who served in the Navy from 1956 to 1962 and celebrated Veterans Day with a friend.
One Vietnam veteran who has lived in Stratford his whole life, said he wasn't appreciated when he returned home, so now he makes sure no vet goes unnoticed.
Two Stratford police officers, Robert Muschett and Andreanos Wheway, both war veterans themselves, helped to organize the event.
They reminded the community that just one day is not enough to celebrate those who served.
