NewsChannel 13 salutes Army Private Manuel Perez of Wilton.

He came to the United States when he was 4, enlisting after Pearl Harbor.


He was at Omaha Beach in Normandy a week after D-Day, fought in the Battle of Mortain, and was captured in the Battle of the Bulge for several months before being liberated.

He turned 96 years old last December.

Thank you for your service.
