A teenager in Westport is honoring veterans this Veterans Day in a unique way.
Dylan Mace, 16, recently lost his grandfather. He came to VFW Post 399 looking to create a tribute to the patriotic veteran.
"I met with the head, his name was Bernie. My grandfather's name is Bernie. It was a perfect fit," he says.
Mace started raising money online to turn an office in the building into a handicap-accessible bathroom.
According to Mace's GoFundMe page, he has raised more than $1,800 as of Friday afternoon.
