Happy birthday…to local veterans


Brody Battaglia and Brodin Lord presented an array of personal items to the Southington Veterans Committee office to be donated to needy veterans. The 8-year-olds celebrated birthdays in May, and they requested money instead of gifts to be donated to local veterans. “I worried about the future, until I met these young adults,” said veteran committee member John DeMello. “We’re going to be just fine.”
