Many veterans and I attended Riverside-Brookfield High School on Monday, Nov. 12 for their annual ceremony honoring all the veterans who served in the military. We were treated to breakfast and a full school assembly, where they played and sang the patriotic songs.

The standing ovation at the end of this assembly was very humbling and so touching. We then went to the home rooms and talked to the students about our experiences.

I want to thank the student body, faculty and staff for the effort they put into this Veterans Day celebration.
