Malloy In Bridgeport For Veteran’s Day Bill Signing

From Governor Dan Malloy:

At 11:00 a.m. (Monday) Governor Malloy will join state and local officials for a bill signing ceremony in Bridgeport to celebrate passage of two new state laws improving services for Connecticut’s veterans. The first, Public Act 13-57, provides honorary diplomas for Vietnam Era veterans who left high school early to join the armed forces. The second, Public Act 13-224, allows municipalities to increase the additional property tax exemption for “100% disabled” veterans with limited income from two to three times the veteran’s base exemption. Monday, November 11, 2013, 11:00 a.m., Port 5 Naval Veterans, 69 Brewster Street, Bridgeport.



  1. As a veteran of the United States Air Force having served during the Vietnam era, I say thanks but no thanks. An Honorary High School degree? Please cut the crap.
    And as to the other, although it is somewhat better, 100% disability? Who is getting a mortgage and paying it off when they are in this condition?

  2. I once received an “Honorary” Black Belt from a sensei, for some community work I did. It didn’t make me any better a fighter, lol. Do you think the “Honorary” High School degree will make them any smarter or is it more like the degree they gave the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.

  3. *** As a Vietnam Era, Operation Just Cause and Desert Storm, Infantry Vet, I’m in favor of any improvements for all Vets for schooling and VA loans. *** TIME TO IMPROVE THE GI BILL ***
