These beautiful students sang, recognized each veteran by name with a pin and card, and applauded.  A slide show featured larger than life photos of each veteran.  (Charles Frazee had five photos :).  Each grade sang the song for the Army, Navy, AirForce, Marine Corp and Coast Guard.  The first graders sang the Marine Corp Hymn.  The fourth graders finished with “Anchors Away”.  “Taps” was played to honor those who died in service.

Charles Frazee died Feb 15, 2018

 

Very proud day to be an American!  God bless the USA.

Elfcroft recommends watching the 2007 movie Lions for Lambs starring Robert Redford.
