Walker-Hackensack-Akeley Hosts Veterans Day Celebration
“Whether they have been in combat or not. It’s a great day to remember everybody that’s ever been in the armed services and remember what they sacrificed for everyone in our country,” said Landerville.
Students from preschool through the 12th grade were able to have a learning experience outside of the classroom today.
“I think it’s great for the kids to see what our veterans have done,” Landerville said.
“This school has taken an active part in honoring our service men and women,” Johnson said.
It’s a theme that lasts all year long with the display of their Wall of Honor.
All of the names on the Wall of Honor are WHA alumni who at one time have served our country.
“It’s something that is very meaningful to me because I do plan on enlisting one day. A lot of my family has been very much in the military so I guess following in their footsteps makes me proud,” said Nicholas Michaud, a WHA High School senior.
For another senior at WHA High School, today is also about pride.
“We have the drum line with the Native Americans, and it’s so cool to see the two cultures enjoy and respect each other and I think it’s cool for the communities to be as one,” said Micah Link.
It’s a day that unites Americans to remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
“The veterans are a community that I think a lot of people tend to not show much appreciation to and that’s one thing I wanted to focus on today was the appreciation to the veterans, because I don’t think enough people do,” Michaud said.
Whether it is a friend or family member…remember to thank a veteran.
