Celebrating Veterans Day in Rochester

I was at Rochester Christian School for a student assembly to commemorate Veterans Day and it was impressive.   Veterans from the community were invited and honored with patriotic music played by the school band and sung by all.  Later  an active duty National Guardsman shared his experience in Afghanistan and what it cost him and his family.  In fact he lost two friends there whose memory he still tries to preserve.  At the close of the event all the other veterans were able to share a bit of their life experience as well.   As the children left they shook each of the veteran's hands and thanked each one for their service.  Adults did as well.  It was very touching.   I remembered my dad and two brothers.  So proud of them.

Happy Veteran's Day!! Never forget!
