Tomorrow, November 11, we celebrate Veterans Day, and honor the 25 million Americans, living Americans, who have served in our Armed Forces.
Veterans Day is an opportunity to honor our veterans for their love of country and the sacrifices that our service members and their families have made in order to keep America safe. Their bravery, their resourcefulness, and their patriotism mark them as our nation’s finest citizens. We as a nation have honored the ideals and values veterans stood for and defended, and I am extremely proud of the way our middle school has continued this very important tradition.
Please remember to accompany your veteran to our program at the BGMS gymnasium tomorrow for lunch. I you have not already registered, just call the BGMS office ASAP to let them know you will be coming. We will start serving our veterans and their guests at 11:15 a.m. with a wonderful program to follow! You will also enjoy the Patriot Pen essays written and presented by our students, along with other elements of this program that is all student led. Help us in making sure all of our local veterans are able to be honored during this very important program. All of our schools are doing some sort of showcase, including everything from a wall of honor at Frankford Elementary to lessons in our classrooms.
Thank you to our Veterans in our community and our staff member Veterans as well! We will never be able to repay the sacrifices you have made for all of us.
