Firefighters in Westport said they wanted to honor veterans this Fourth of July.

That's why they donned traditional military green fire t-shirts on Monday.

They said it was a way to show patriotism while honoring members of the military who are veterans.

The department said it has many members who are serving, or who have served, in various branches of the government. It said they've protected everyone both in Connecticut and throughout the world.

Firefighters asked that citizens remember their public servants this Fourth.

Members of the Westport Fire Department Platoon 1, who are on duty this holiday, said they wish everyone a safe and blessed Fourth of July.
