Palmer Trinity School hosted veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces for a special ceremony and breakfast to honor their service. Performances by the Palmer Trinity School band, choir and dancers touched many in attendance.
Vietnam veteran Dexter Lehtinen spoke to the student body about his experiences with the physical and psychological ramifications of war, as well as the importance of honoring and respecting those who have fought to protect our country.
After the ceremony, veterans were invited to a special breakfast where they were again honored for their years of service. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, commissioners Jose "Pepe" Diaz and Daniela Levine Cava, as well as school board chairman Larry Feldman, were in attendance.
