Citizen soldiers, militiamen have shaped the fabric of this great nation from the 1600's on to present day. Our team honors Colonel Knowlton and his Rangers who fought alongside other Connecticut Native Son's like Captain Nathan Hale and my ancester Captain Eliphalet Holmes.
I often think that if Knowlton's Rangers hadn't fought so bravely during the Battle of Harlem Heights Captain Holmes would not have survived, and I would not be here today.
Our team Honor's Connecticut's brave men and women who serve today and those who have come before them.
