Choir students sang the National Anthem and “God Bless the USA,” while the band performed “With Liberty for All” and “Marches of the Armed Forces.”
Students read essays about the importance of the national observance and also addressed the history of each branch of the military – recognizing those in attendance for their service.
The special speaker was state senator Brian Birdwell, a decorated military veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm and later worked on the Department of the Army staff at the Pentagon. Birdwell was severally injured when a hijacked plane crashed into the building on September 11, 2001.
