Firefighters Go Above and Beyond for Veteran on Memorial Day

Milford firefighters spent part of Memorial Day helping out a veteran after his wife suffered a medical emergency. 

Firefighters responded to a medical call late Monday morning and the female patient needed to go to the hospital.

Her husband, a military veteran, remained by her side and firefighters wanted to do something to help so the man could focus on helping his wife.

After noticing that the yard work was not complete, Lt. AJ Murphy, firefighter Eric Ouellette and firefighter Justin Edo finished it before leaving the scene. 

“We simply wanted to do something good for the Veteran, so that he may return home to find the work complete, and focus the attention on his wife,” Murphy said in a statement.
