Over 20 veterans from the local American Legion and VFW were in attendance to help celebrate this important date. Command Sergeant Major of the Nebraska National Guard, Eli Valenzuela, delivered the Veterans Day message. Mr. Valenzuela, a veteran of over 30 years, spoke about the importance of recognizing the sacrifice of our veterans past and present.
Members of the Wahoo High School and Bishop Neumann bands and choirs also joined in the celebration by performing renditions of “God Bless America” and “Salute to America’s Finest.” Once again, the joint music groups put on an impressive show for the nearly 600 people in attendance.
This is the seventh year that both schools have joined together to commemorate and honor our veterans.
