Veterans from various branches of the armed forces visited Harper Creek Middle School, on Tuesday, November 7. An assembly was held for them in honor of Veterans Day, celebrated on November 11.
The entire HCMS student body participated in posing questions ranging from inquiring about basic training, which branch had the best "chow," the importance of discipline and living a healthy lifestyle, to the brotherhood and sisterhood bond formed in the service.
During the presentation, seventh-grade social studies teacher and organizer of this event, Adam Ries was presented with the Veteran's Advocate medal.
