Veterans Day Program at St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point

St Mary Catholic Community School held its annual Veterans Day Program on Friday, November 11th. Local veterans were welcomed to the school by flag waving preschoolers, before being led by a procession of Girl and Boy Scouts into the gym. As the first veterans entered the gym, they were met with a roaring standing ovation.


The students lifted their voices in song to sing each of the five branches of the military’s song to recognize the veterans as a part of their respective branch. The keynote address was given by Air Force Veteran, Dr. Nicholas Berns.


Dr. Berns delivered a captivating speech and slideshow about his years of service to his country and his local community.
