West Branch Hosts Veterans Breakfast

West Branch Area High School said “Thank You” to the Veterans by hosting a Veteran’s Day Breakfast in the High School cafeteria on November 11th. West Branch students and cafeteria workers made and delivered breakfast to the veterans, which consisted of pancakes, eggs, homefries, sausage, and toast. The 2nd Grade students came down to sing songs such as, “America, The Beautiful” and “Yankee Doodle.” Once the students finished singing, they walked around and passed out cards to all of the veterans.

The entire event was humbling to say the least. The Veterans and their families carried themselves with the utmost respect, and they enjoyed the children’s company just as much as the children enjoyed seeing them. As I strolled around the room taking pictures and serving some of the vets, I was filled with pride and respect. It definitely was one of the more humbling things that I’ve ever seen.
