Nov. 11 is an essential day in the United States. We celebrate the veterans that have served and died for our country. We all find ways to honor this day with family and mourn the veterans who passed away in their heroic acts. On Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022, Pueblo County High School held an assembly that honors the veterans that attended our school. Thanks to the JROTC program and the student council members, the assembly was well executed and did a great job showing their appreciation and respect toward our veterans.
The ceremony was quite respectful and very organized. It’s fantastic to know that some of our staff and their family members served to protect our country. A notable quote from slideshow that was presented was, "It is the Soldier, not the campus organize that has given us freedom to protest.”
Sophomore, Dulce Alvarado Leyva, has a good opinion of this beautiful assembly stating, “It was a pretty ceremony and it was very sad at the same time, I got kind of emotional.” English teacher, Rachel Baker stated, “In my opinion, the Veterans’ Day assembly is one of the best ones we have here at County. It is such an emotional event and humbling to be in a room with war heroes. The empty boots give me chills, hearing roll call, listening to a loved one say deceased is so sad, and I always jump at the gun salute. Every year I take tissues because I know I will cry, I cry for my own loved ones loss, and the others I never met.” As you can see we all love and respect the veterans that have died for us and our country, they will never be forgotten in our hearts.
