Liberty High School celebrated our veterans a few days early on Friday.

For the tenth year in a row,  the high school held its Veterans Day observance. Students who previously wrote poems recited them during an assembly and the school's choir sang to the kids. Everything is centered around our troops.
"I think they need a reminder that this is a very important day. It's not just a day off from school. I think it's important to remind our students that we should never forget and study history so we don't repeat the bad parts," said English Department Chair Lexsana Pilewski-Carr, who organized the event.

There was about a dozen veterans at the ceremony. They all had the opportunity to go speak to a class if they wanted.
"It's an honor like to serve your country is an honor. To get talk to these young kids, Liberty seems like it has some very intelligent kids. Just hope we helped them out and give them a better outlook on life of things of what they're going to get into once they graduate from high school," said Navy veteran Danny Keith.

This was Keith's first time at the celebration but he said he would love to come back in the future.
