In honor of Veteran's Day, my son's Boy Scout troop held a flag retirement ceremony this evening.

Thank you, to my grandfather, my great-uncle, and to all of the men and women who have served our country.

THANK YOU to all who have served our country and are currently serving. It is because of you that my boys have the freedom to salute our flag at school each morning.

The lower elementary grades held a flag assembly Monday morning to honor our local veterans. Then the higher elementary grades invited the veterans for lunch.
