As a veteran, I was one of many participants invited to a recent Veterans Day celebration at Baucom Elementary School in Apex.
It was especially gratifying to see the virtues of gratitude and patriotism being passed along to our younger generation. Hearing the students sing the national anthem, read their poems and sing their touching anthem plus viewing all the pictures and patriotic posters in the hallway gave me the deepest feeling of national pride. Never have I experienced such expressions of appreciation for my naval service.
The Baucom staff members deserve praise for their dedication and support in making this day a memorable event in the lives of us veterans as well as the students. What a joy it was to have been a participant in such a meaningful celebration!
