Reginald Jackson is a Vietnam Marine Corps vet whose birthday also happens to be on Nov. 11 — aka Veterans Day.

On Thursday afternoon Jackson came for the first time in his life to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Long Wharf and placed his hands on the names of his friends, fellow Wilbur Cross High School classmates who served in Vietnam but never made it back, engraved on the stone beneath the V.

Jackson was one of 50 people in attendance for a serious yet not somber Veterans Day commemoriation organized by the National Veterans Council for Legal Redress (NVCLR) and keynoted by U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal spoke emotionally about the NVCLR, which refers vets to assistance for social, housing, vocational, and counseling services.
