GCA honors veterans during special service
To celebrate Veterans’ Day, the National Honor Society at Grace Christian Academy invited local veterans to a special chapel service honoring veterans.
The program included an Armed Forces medley of traditional military service songs. Guest speaker, Chaplain Mark Olson, the Chaplain of Arlington National Cemetery, shared what Veteran’s Day means and shared personal stories of men and women he served with who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country’s freedom.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the veterans and guests enjoyed refreshments as members of the National Honor Society, Student Government and Class officers were able to personally show gratitude towards each veteran, and were able to hear their stories of service.
