GWHSOTA Cadets Honor Veterans
Veteran's Day 1999
GWHSOTA JrROTC Members paid honor to all Veterans in a stirring ceremony on November 11, 1999.
Guest Speaker Bessie Branham, VFW Woman's Auxillary officer, reminded us of the contributions of veterans who fought, bled and/or died for the freedoms we have today.
Since the Revolutionary War, multitudes of Americans - of all races, all ethnic backgrounds, genders, and social class have sacrificed futures, personal lives, and life itself to make this country the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
While all is not perfect in the United States - where on earth is perfection to be found, anyway? - still, millions struggle to come here, live here, stay here, and die here.
And, while not perfect, it is hard indeed, if not impossible, to find even a single American today who wants to leave.
God Bless America. America the Democracy.
America the Beautiful..
