Always Remember

NORWICH – City Police Chief Joseph Angelino opened his Memorial Day address by asking the few hundred gathered in the West Park to recognize former Norwich resident Ford Hitt, a World War II veteran and survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack.



“He is a true American treasure,” said Angelino, referring to Hitt, who now resides at the New York State Veterans’ Home in Oxford. “He deserves to be recognized.”
