Today, the boys school put-on a special presentation for Vets. There were vets of every stripe, active duty and retired, guard and reserve, and each service was represented. First, we started with the National Anthem, then the class president and vice president (whoda thought elementary school had a student administration?). It was very touching though, and then the classes took turns singing each of the service songs. The alumni stood when their song was sung, but I was the only one clapping and singing during the Air Force Song (a bit of a pet peeve for me)…

After the assembly, the Vets were escorted to the classes of their kids or grandkids, where the individual classes continued the celebration with a touching rendition of America the Beautiful. It was great spending Veterans Day with the boys…
