WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - With Veterans Day a little more than a week away, Western Massachusetts cities and towns are honoring veterans from their communities.
On Saturday, 28 West Springfield vets were honored during the town's annual Veterans Breakfast at the St. Thomas School.
Family members joined the veterans who had served their country as far back as the second World War.
World War II vet Bartlett Hastings told 22News, he's impressed with this salute.
“This is nice, it's a nice get together and it's a very good way to recognize all these people who served their country, “ said Barlett Hastings.
And as we approach Veterans Day, 22News intends to cover many more similar events honoring those who fought for their country.
