Honoring Veteran's Day

We had two special guests this Veteran's Day. Our first speaker was Senior Master Sergeant Kelby Belgard of the 122nd Fighter Squadron Louisiana Air National Guard. SMSgt Belgard has served in the military for 23 years. He shared with us the history of Veteran's Day and the benefits of being a soldier. Our second speaker, Seaman Walter Wilson of the Amphibious Forces, served in the Navy from 1967 to 1970, and fought in the VietNam War on the USS Oakhill and the USS Duluth. He discussed what a veteran is, why we honor them, and the importance of an education. After our discussion, our guests helped the students create an art sculpture using the colors red, white, and blue.
