Beach Elementary students invited veterans in their lives to join them for breakfast on Tuesday morning to celebrate Veteran’s Day. Over a dozen local veterans enjoyed breakfast with the students and then led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. Principal Larry Wood explained that, with the help of some older students, the Pledge was taped and would be used during the school’s morning routine as the school’s students listen to announcements and say the Pledge of Allegiance together.
One service member attended the event from a distance. Shown ‘standing’ with his family on the left, Petty Officer 1st Class Anthony Tipton is due home in the next couple weeks after a year’s deployment to Bahrain.
