Profiles in courage.

More than 200 residents braved the cold and rain of a raw November morning to pay tribute to the Tewksbury men and women who have served their country and their fellow citizens in the armed services.
Among those in attendance were Selectmen Mark Kratman and Bruce Panalaitis, state Rep. Jim Miceli and state Sen. Brabara L'Italien.
The guest speaker was former U.S. Army Ranger Derek Franks, a native of Tewksbury.
As always, participants included the The Swinging Seniors, the TMHS Marching Band the VFW and American Legion, as well as the Police and Fire Department Color Guards.
Editor Bill Gilman was on hand and captured these images.
