"It hit me last year, that I can take an hour in the morning to thank these people for their sacrifice," said Bell. "They put on this parade every year for us. But the people who served, they don't ask us for much."
Everyone is invited to Friday's ceremony in honor of the estimated 7,700 to 9,000 veterans who live in Somerville. At 10 a.m., members of the Allied Veterans Council, Mayor Curtatone, and members of the Board of Aldermen, will meet at the VFW Dilboy Post, 371 Summer St, to make brief speeches to recognize and honor those who served.
The ceremony lasts about 30 minutes, but if you stay and mingle afterward, you may meet some real heroes.
