New Britain in Hartford County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
Salute To Women
They sacrificed their men to the horrors of war… they suffered and shed tears in silence… without expectation of recognition, monuments, awards, or medals. They are the true heroines of the century of war… today your veterans salute you.
