No parade this year. No marching bands. Crowds lining Main Street. But veterans gathered on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend to continue a tradition that goes back decades in Ridgefield: the honoring of veterans’ graves with small American flags.
“It’ll be over 900 flags,” American Legion Commander George Besse said, strolling with an armful of flags among the graves at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
