MOH Homer L. Wise 37th Anniversary April 22, 2011

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Today, Friday, April 22, is the thirty seventh anniversary of Homer Wise's death. Sgt. Wise was Stamford's greatest war hero. During World War II, he was wounded three times during several major battles in Italy and France. He was honored by a grateful nation with the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government; the Medal of Honor. He was also honored with The Silver Star, Two Bronze Stars and ten other decorations.

Homer spent the last thirty years of his life in Stamford, CT. He passed away in 1974 at Yale New Haven Hospital. At the time, he was working at Connecticut National Bank in Darien as a supervisor. The Homer L. Wise Memorial Committee is working hard to honor him with a magnificent bronze statue which is now entering its final stage.

We thank you for your continued support.
