Sierra Lutheran students find enlightenment through veterans

School district honors Island veterans with first-ever parade

The veterans are happy to see so many students take an interest in them, because, they say, it is important for younger generations to understand why we honor veterans on Veterans Day.

Melonas said each year, students and staff create an "honor wall" as a tribute to veterans. Jonah Meister, a veteran, told about his experience in the armed forces.

"I thought, am I ever going to make it home? I've been blessed. I've not only been blessed with wonderful family, a wonderful country, wonderful neighbors".

"It's a very excellent program, considering we're a small little town, but we get a lot of cooperation from the community as well as the school", retired Air Force nurse Marilyn Wahl said.

The veterans were introduced at an assembly and then students honored the vets through songs, poems and essays.

After the assembly, students gathered at a table to write Thank You cards to sailors and Marines of the Carrier Air Wing 17 and Theodore Roosevelt Strike Group that embarked for deployment last month. As Miller's story stimulated curious minds, some students mingled around veterans to hear about their stories.

"Honestly, it's an honor to be here", student Erika Book said.

Celebrations such as this encourage the public to take the time to thank a veteran for their service, so take the time, whether today or tomorrow to thank a veteran.

Students have also created profiles of veterans - those special to them or those from history - which are on display throughout the school.

Local veterans who watched the ceremony say it reminds them of the lost brothers and a nation that is eternally grateful for their sacrifice.
