Roman Catholic High School held its annual Veteran’s Day Assembly to honor veteran service men and women on Monday, November 9, 2015. This year’s assembly was dedicated specifically to veterans of the Vietnam War as this year marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the war.
The event is organized every year by the Roman Reserves, a club for students who through various activities support our military troops, both at home and away, throughout the school year, as well as, Student’s Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). Both student clubs are organized by SHALOM Counselor Maureen Brown.
During the assembly, students and faculty recited excerpts from letters written by members of the military from each conflict since the Revolutionary War. These letters reveal the personal sacrifice and commitment of those who have valiantly served our nation and preserved the freedoms we enjoy. Veterans including parents and guardians of current students, as well as, Roman alumni attended the ceremony.
