The Warwick Historical Society will present the Third Annual “Remembrances” on Thurs., May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Old School Baptist Meeting House in Warwick. There will be a reading of short stories about veterans by Tom Brennan.
Brennan grew up on the south shore of Long Island in Suffolk County and graduated from The College of William and Mary in Virginia in 1964. He enlisted in the Navy, served his first tour on the only surface ship that test-fired the Polaris missile, and then spent 1967 as a watch officer with a new command in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.
An active member of the Warwick community, Brennan serves as a Board Member of the Warwick Historical Society, New Milford/Edenville United Methodist Church, and American Legion Post 214. The father of two daughters, Brennan is also president of the New Milford Historical Society. Brennan will be serving as the Grand Marshall for this year’s Memorial Day Parade.
Brennan has a lifelong interest in military service, his father was a World War II veteran of the Pacific. He will be sharing a number of short one page stories he has written about veterans with an emphasis on the meaning and never ending relevance of Memorial Day.
