A Wonderful Way to Honor Our Veterans and Active Duty

Today, as we did last Veterans Day, we celebrated at Matoaka Elementary School in Williamsburg, VA.  Our granddaughter, Autumn, is a student there and each year they honor the veterans in their lives.  Col. Jim Bleecker, along with about 75 other veterans, was in attendance for the program and for the luncheon.

 The Fifth Grade put on the following program

This is America

The Pledge of Allegiance

The Star-Spangled Banner

American Tears

Armed Forces Medley

The Lights of Freedom

It is wonderful to see the children and the staff at Matoaka Elementary recognize the many active duty and retired veterans that make up their families.  It is important that we be reminded that without the sacrifice so many have made and continue to make, we would not have the freedoms we treasure.
