East Hartford Veterans Raise Flag in Great River Park

On Wednesday, June 23, Laurie Bastarache, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran of the Korean War, raised the flag on our newly installed flagpole in Great River Park. East Hartford Veterans from all military branches, including Riverfront Ranger Dan Lareau, were in attendance, commemorating the 71st anniversary of the day the Korean War began, June 25, 1950.
