Louisiana Middle School honors local veterans

Posted on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 3:00 pm

Members of the American Legion Post No. 370, in Louisiana, participated in the Louisiana Middle School veterans assembly on Friday, Nov. 9. The middle school students worked hard to put together this year’s veterans assembly by helping to organize the event, putting together slide shows, reciting poems, performing songs, and playing band music for the veterans.
Robert Brown was the guest speaker this year. He gave 20 years of his life in service to our country as part of the Air Force. In his speech to those gathered in the gym, he said, “Millions of Americans have fought and died on battlefields here and abroad to defend our freedoms and way of life. Today, our troops continue to make the ultimate sacrifices, and even as we lose troops, more Americans step forward to say, ‘I’m ready to serve.’ They follow in the footsteps of generations of fine Americans.”
