Saluting our heroes

One of the neatest traditions at Roger Bacon is its annual Veterans Breakfast, hosted by the Student Senate on Nov. 10.

"Roger Bacon High School is extremely grateful for all the men and women who have graciously served our country," according to an entry on the school’s Facebook page.

"One of the highlights of the assembly was the Question and Answer session where students could hear directly from the veterans. Their heartfelt words were genuinely appreciated by our students and at times bringing tears to students’ and faculty’s eyes."

As student President Jack Blaut said, "A veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America’ for an amount ‘up to and including my life.’"
