July 13, 1940: Connecticut St. Armory prepares for war

Before it was home to punk rock concerts and proms just about full time, the armory on the West Side was the home of the 174th Regiment. It was also where the 174th was activated to train for service as the country readied for World War II.

Armed men protected the gates of the armory 75 years ago today.
