Scott Savary and Dennis Salzer soaked up sun, alcohol and, yes, the sights and sounds of horses Thursday afternoon as the Budweiser Clydesdales trotted out to help pay tribute to them and fellow veterans.

The two Vietnam veterans were among 20 honored as part of a “Welcome Home Our Heroes” campaign at Dichello Distributors.

The Budweiser Clydesdale horses’ ast appearance in Greater New Haven was eight years ago.

Savary and Salzer, both of Shelton, served in the Navy reserve together and look forward to spending time with one another. Savary initially invited a family member to attend, but that person had other obligations. So, instead of going alone, Savary invited eight of his friends.

“It was a privledge to come here,” said Savary, who served for 22 years.

Geoffrey Acampora, director of marketing for Dichello, which put on the event, said honoring veterans is something which needs to be done. With the help of Budweiser, Acampora said, donations are made to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which helps veterans and their families.

This is the video I filmed of the parade in Winter Park for Lt. Charles Nadd with the Budweiser Clydesdales. The parade was used in a wonderful Super Bowl Commercial.
