November 13, 2018

NORFOLK - Norfolk veterans and the public gathered Monday at the Norfolk Veteran’s Home for a Veteran’s Day program.

Director of Human Resources and Accreditation at Norfolk Public Schools Mike Hart was the featured speaker.

Hart says being involved with the school district allows him to share with the students how the sacrifices of those who served have an impact in their daily lives.

He says we need to be grateful for the many unsung heroes who made the country what it is today.

“Many of our veterans didn’t ask to leave their homes to fight on distance lands, and many of didn’t even volunteer. They didn’t go to war because they love fighting. They were called to be a part of something bigger than themselves. They were ordinary people and they responded in extraordinary ways.

The program was presented by the VFW Post 1644, American Legion Post 16, American Legion Riders, and the AMVETS.
