CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - A solemn Veterans Day related ceremony occurred late Saturday at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee.
It's called a retreat ceremony when the men and women from all four branches of the military at Westover honor fellow veterans past and present.
U.S. Air Force Reservist Sgt Abdul Addy summed up for 22News what this ceremony means to him.
“This is a very, very honorable moment for everybody in the military because this is something you do to honor those individuals that have served and given their life in the past to honor the country, but it's also a timer to say thank you to them,” said Addy.
The ceremony took place at the base ellipse, the site of monuments that honor this military facility and all who've served at Westover.
