Trumbull Resident Honors Veterans and Their Families
Forty men and women from Connecticut died in the Iraq War. Trumbull resident Mike Mastroni created the Connecticut Fallen Heroes Foundation to remember veterans killed after 9-11 and to honor their families.
WNPR's Lucy Nalpathanchil spoke with him in Hartford about his decision to get involved in this way.
