Tales of Valor
Reflections, Advice and Lessons Learned from the Veterans of Northbridge

Throughout the month of November we have collaborated to celebrate the Veterans of Northbridge and the rich history of the amazing men and women living in our communities. Their stories of bravery, dedication and sacrifice are the markings of individuals who have truly lived well and loved life.

Elliot (Resident Avita of Needham) as told by his wife

Elliot served with the Airborne division from 1959 until the early 1960’s where he remembers sharing a camaraderie with his fellow officers. Elliot entered as a commission officer to train for Airborne. He had never flown in an airplane until he was sent to Jump School, he loved it! He was then sent to Germany to help defend the territory, the wall was up between East and West Germany at the time.BOOK A VISIT
