Homer L. Wise dedication ceremony

Following the annual Memorial Day parade, Stamford paid tribute Sunday to the late World War II veteran Homer Lee Wise, the city's only Medal of Honor winner, dedicating a statue of Wise in Veterans Park on Atlantic Street.

Morton Dean, former CBS and ABC news anchor and Paul Bucha, Medal of Honor recipient in 1968, were among the speakers at the event, organized by fellow veteran James Vlasto.
