Today is the annual day to recognize veterans and current military personnel for their service and sacrifice for this country. This hits home in my family as my father, brother, several uncles and many cousins served in the military. I know that many of you have served or have family members that have served or are presently serving in defense of this country. This country is free and secure because of the diligent work and sacrifice of all of those Americans. We at USD 348 want to thank all veterans and present military personnel . We ask that the next time you speak with a veteran or currently serving military personnel please tell them how much you appreciate their service.
