Stonington man among 10 vets to be added to Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame

HARTFORD (AP) — Ten veterans, including a Stonington man, will be inducted into the Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame.

The class of 2019 inductees are scheduled to be honored during a ceremony planned for Dec. 6 at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. Each inductee or a family member will receive a commemorative medallion and certificate recognizing their induction.

Two of the inductees will be honored posthumously. One of them is Jesse Monroe Harrison of Stonington. Harrison served in the U.S. Army Air Corps. 

The Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished Connecticut veterans who have made significant contributions to their communities after leaving military service. Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz says some of the inductees have dedicated their lives to helping fellow veterans, while others volunteered to serve on state boards and commissions, became medical volunteers and mentored youth.

The honored veterans are from Waterbury, Enfield, Bloomfield, Simsbury, Bristol and Middletown.
