World War II veteran James Zographos and Marine reservist William Carr will serve as grand marshals of Westborough's 2012 Veterans Day observance, town veterans officials said Tuesday.
Zographos, a Turnpike Road resident, served in the Army Air Force during the Second World War, officials said in a press release. He was "a bombardier who was involved in the Central Europe air offensive in northern France, Ardennes, the Rhineland, and Normandy," and received six Oak Leaf Clusters; the Distinguished Flying Cross; the European, African, and Middle East Theater Medals; six Bronze Stars; and a Purple Heart Air Medal, veterans officials said.
Zographos was honorably discharged as a first lieutenant.
Carr, a Robin Road resident, is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and USMC Reserve, veterans officials said. He also is a former Westborough High School football coach, and still volunteers in town.
Veterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11.
