Every year on November 11, Americans honor the 19.6 million active and former US service members who have gone to war.

Locally, Veterans Day is often marked by school programs with speeches and solemn ceremonies, and special meals as a way to offer our appreciation.

As a way to say "thanks for your service”, the students and staff at Tri-City United Schools and Most Holy Redeemer School held their Veterans Day programs on Monday.

At TCU schools, the programs were filled with speeches and music. Eighth graders Kaia Krocak and Rhia Krautkremer spoke about honoring the United States Flag and what it means to be free.

“The flag is a symbol of freedom. It shows that America will stand up for what it wants and will fight to get it,” Krautkremer said.

Josiah Turek, a seventh grader at TCU, said, “I know the true meaning of the flag and I respect it with pride and patriotism."
