Awesome, spectacular, five-star and the list of superlatives could continue at length to describe the first-ever Franklin County district wide Veterans Day program. Without a doubt, the best ever county-based celebration honoring our veterans that I have seen in my 78-plus years, 30 of which were spent in the U.S. Navy.

Congratulations and kudos to District Superintendent Nina Marks, ABC School Principal Chimene Johnson, their faculty, staff and students for their exceptional show and hospitality. This was truly a great showcase of our public school’s talent and educational resources dedicated to honoring and remembering the men and women who have served this great country. God Bless America!
