Family, friends, state and local officials and the community came together at Stamford's Government Center, to honor Chief Petty Officer Brian Bill.
Bill was a U.S. Navy Seal from Stamford. He was killed in action in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011 when the helicopter he and 30 other SEALs were riding in was shot down by enemy fire. They had participated in a daring nighttime mission.
Now a portion of Washington Blvd. is named after Bill, the Chief Special Warfare Operator. A committee has been created in his name and also honors all others who have fought in the latest U.S. war on Terror. The City is planning to put a monument in Veterans Park in honor of Bill.
