Kitty Stone Elementary School gave a very fitting and at times very moving tribute to veterans in its annual Veteran’s Day program.

The veterans were treated to a reception followed by a program by the Kitty Stone Singers.

Led by music director Lisa Gillespie, the singers sang ‘This is America’, the ‘Star Spangled Banner’, ‘Lights of Freedom’, the ‘Armed Forces Salute’, and all the students participated in singing a ‘Grateful Nation’.

David Duhon, a Navy veteran who served for 31/2 years in Vietnam, spoke for the veterans, telling the students of why it is important to have our military to protect our country, and of the sacrifices that are made by the men and women in the military.

Sixth-grade student, Hannah Grace Weathers, gave a moving tribute to her great-grandfather who was a veteran who escaped capture during World War II.

Veterans were asked to stand as the music from their branch of service was played.

The veterans showed their appreciation of the program by standing at attention and saluting the students and faculty of Kitty Stone.
