GROTON – For the second consecutive year, State Representatives Robin Green (R-55) was joined by fellow lawmakers, caregivers, families, and friends at the Submarine Force Museum for a ceremony paying tribute our state’s veterans.
The historical ship Nautilus (SSN 571), the first and now-retired nuclear powered submarine served as the backdrop to the 9th annual “To Honor and Remember” event. Nautilus was decommissioned after 25 years of service in March of 1980 after logging more than 500,000 miles.
“It was an honor to have been invited to attend this event and to celebrate all of the current members of our armed forces and our veterans,” Rep. Green said. “The sacrifice and commitment these men and women have made for our day to day freedoms is something we should never take for granted.”
