November 11th: I Am Thankful for Veterans

This is a follow-up from yesterday's post. The second part of our Veteran's Day assembly yesterday at school was to dedicate the Honor Wall in our cafeteria. Many people have been working on making this Honor Wall possible. It is a long wall that includes all the veterans that attended our school or lived in our community of Inchelium.

I was particularly struck by the number of young men that served in Viet Nam from this small community. The ceremony opened with drumming, then an elder gave a moving talk about what our veterans have sacrificed. Many of the veterans were there in attendance.
