Ed Vebell Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshal
Vebell will turn 96 on May 25, four days before the Memorial Day parade,
which sets out at 9 a.m. on Riverside Avenue.
Vebell, a World War II Army sergeant, was the key artist in Europe and North Africa for Stars & Stripes, the American newspaper reporting on matters affecting the U.S. Armed Forces. He was also the only artist allowed to cover the 1945, post-war Nuremberg, Germany war trials, which prosecuted members of the Nazi leadership. Vebell also rode with the cavalry in Algiers, was an Olympic fencer, and upon his return statewide, drew for myriad national magazines and newspapers.
Parade will begin at 9 a.m. at Saugatuck Elementary School and will travel up
Riverside Avenue, over the Post Road and on to Town Hall.
There will be coffee and doughnuts available at the starting point of the parade
from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. which will be provided by the Westport Kiwanis Club.
Following the parade, a community memorial service will be on Veterans Green.
William Vornkahl, president of the Westport Veterans Council,

Stratford police helicopter, Eagle 1, weather permitting.
