Wright, who was recognized by the Red Sox on June 6 for his work with military veterans, was also honored August 18 by Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) at its national convention in Arizona. The VFW gave Wright the Gold Medal of Merit for his founding of the Severely Injured Military Veterans: Fulfilling Their Dreams program. Wright and his wife Susan DeBevoise Wright will be making their first visit to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France this September.
