best way to proceed. At a Town Council meeting she presented her thoughts plans, and desires for a memorial. The Town: Council gave their full support for the project and voted unanimously to provide a site for the memorial. The Town Manager then researched town lands and provided a list of possible choices. The final decision was made on March 13, 2007 to place Connecticut Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Veterans Memorial Green in Coventry.
Donation letters were sent to various Veterans Organizations, businesses in Coventry and the general public, including those that had lost someone dear in Vietnam. The support was overwhelming, not only from those in Connecticut but from other states as well. Fundraisers, including a motorcycle run, dinners given by the American Legion Riders and the West Shore Middle School in Milford helped to raise enough funds to put a down payment on the memorial. As the year closed, the site for the memorial was being prepared.
The ground breaking ceremony in August of 2007 was attended by many and the support continued to grow. It is hoped that this Memorial will make the Veterans, Coventry and the State of Connecticut proud and remind future generations of their sacrifices. Jean Risley, and the entire committee would like to once again thank egeryone for their support and to welcome home our Vietnam Veterans.
