In their service
- Published: November 16, 2017
Mills Lawn students honored veterans and current service members Monday, on the observed Veteran’s Day, by inviting them to a luncheon. Students gave readings on the history of the holiday, and the 5th- and 6th-grade choir sang the national anthem. The mood was celebratory, yet respectful. The table in the background was set and purposely left empty to remind the assemled of those veterans who had died or were otherwise unable to attend. Above, Zaiya Hill read about Armistice Day, which celebrated the end of World War I, and later became known as Veteran’s Day in the United States.
