Discussions of military history that coincide with the date of the monthly Veterans Breakfast — in this instance, May 6 — provided a full agenda of significant topics Friday morning.
Most notably were the many military actions leading to the end of World War II. The May 1945 sinking of a German U-boat off Block Island sparked a review of Hopkinton veterans’ involvement in “submarine chasing” along the eastern shore of the United States.
Additionally, there’s never a lack of remembering Hopkinton’s recently deceased veterans who were so vital in creating real-life military history in several different war eras.

Thank you all for your service to our nation. While not a veteran myself, many members of my family served and are serving. Thank you again.
