Many visitors enjoyed the Veterans Day Program today at South Edmonson Elementary as past and present men and women were honored for their service and sacrifice. Over two dozen veterans attended as current Sheriff Wil Cannon, Retired 1st Sgt, Army Reserves, was featured as the guest speaker. His speech centered around the history of Veterans Day and the legacy of veterans in the ongoing mission to protect America. He spoke how older veterans handed it down to him, how he handed it down to younger soldiers, and how one day they will pass it down to the students.
Local Cub Scout Troop 597 Color Guard presented the colors and Girl Scout Troop 313 performed "The Flag Recipe" skit. Several third and fourth grade students assisted with presentation of the event as well. The program ended with students singing the song "Thank You, Soldiers" to all the veterans in attendance.
Over two dozen veterans attended the event. Wil Cannon addresses the crowd as Carol Stice, Curriculum Coordinator, looks on.
