Read Moutain Middle School Honors Veterans

posted Nov 9, 2012, 11:25 AM by bcps web

Veterans were honored on Friday morning Nov. 9 at Read Mountain Middle School.  Over 60 Veterans came to the event. Most of them were associated to particular students– parent, grandparents, cousins and kin. The school recognized each by name during the assembly.

The band played, the chorus sang and the students waved flags and posters. The entire Assembly said the pledge of allegiance after the playing of the national anthem. It was a red, white and blue morning of Veteran acknowledgements. Speakers included: Scott Gathje, United State Marine Corps; James Frazier, United States Army; Robert Moyer, United States Air Force and William Phoenix, United States Navy. Only the United States  Coast Guard was missing from the  speaker chairs. After a send off  and dismissal, Veterans were honored at a reception and student went back to class.
