The City of Norwalk and the Town of Westport held their annual memorial day parades on Monday despite morning rain.
"Today is all about honoring the 2.5 million Americans that did not make it back home," Westport RTM representative Andrew Colabella said.
Hundreds of Fairfield County residents lined the streets waving American flags and holding up signs.
"My own grandfather was in World War II and I think about him today especially," Norwalk's Tyler Deieso said.
Quartermaster Phil Delgado says the VFW Post 399 and American Legion Post 63 in Westport are overwhelmed daily with phone calls from veterans who need assistance.
"You have a lot of veterans that need help, and it's also their families who need help," Delgado said.
Parade supporters say you can help out by volunteering at your local VFW or by donating to the American Legion.
