“Thank you to the men and women for providing enjoyment and inspiration each year in the City of Bridgeport-- but also for your service to our Country,” said Mayor Ganim.
Chris Caruso, who has helped coordinate the Quantico Marine Corps Band’s participation annually said, “Each year, as we plan this trip, the Mayor has continually been supportive. So, thank you Mayor Ganim and thank you City of Bridgeport for all you do to make this possible.”
Randel Metzinger, U.S. Marine Corps Warrant Officer said “We know we have a home here in Bridgeport. Anytime we come to Bridgeport, we feel like family.”
