Arcola students honor veterans

Arcola students honor veterans

The morning will be highlighted by a Veterans Day parade at 10 a.m., with students marching through the halls with a guest they invited to the celebration or carrying photos of veterans, or those now serving, who are also family members.

"We believe that there are future generals and admirals in the audience today, that when they see what their USA military is, can be, and has done; that may spark in them a desire to join one of the branches of the service", says Gary Parrott, the Commander of the Grand Valley Combined Honor. "They can be brothers, uncles, fathers of our students, and the list just keeps growing".

Students were reminded about what Veterans Day means and encouraged to always show thanks to America's veterans.

Brown Funeral Home and United Bank were this year's sponsors for the Veterans Day reception and assembly, according to Melonas.

Things didn't work out exactly as expected but rejoining the Patriots puts him squarely back in the top 12 tight end conversation. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is playing Go Fish while the rest of the National Football League is showing their hand.

The Highland County Veterans Honor Guard conducted the posting of the colors at the event, and the Hillsboro High School band performed the national anthem, as well as the rallying songs of each military branch. "We like them to bring in pictures, artifacts, things they can share with the kids to give the kids a sense of what it's like to serve in our military".

Veterans Day activities are planned on a number of Cleburne ISD campuses, with area veterans, or those now serving, invited to attend. "We couldn't have done a lot of this without their support". "We just hope they know we're thinking about them and we appreciate their service".

Staff and students go all out in an effort to thank the men and women who serve and have served in the armed forces.

The students said it took about a month to put the program together but it was all worth it to honor the veterans.
