I would like to thank Central Community Elementary School for a great ceremony honoring veterans on Veterans Day. I am extremely grateful that my great grandchildren go to a school that truly honors our country and our flag.

Thank you to the school for showing children at a young age what Veterans Day truly means. I am beyond proud to have my great grandson join me during this ceremony. Thank you again to Central Community Elementary School for the great tribute for veterans like myself.
