Schools throughout the Rocky Point School District took time to pause, remember and give thanks to local servicemen and women this November by taking part in a number of Veterans Day events and activities.

At Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School, second-graders gathered in the school’s gymnasium to celebrate and honor local servicemen and women for their bravery and service. After the nation’s colors were presented by a member of the Rocky Point Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6249, the veterans in attendance were individually introduced and presented with a paper medal of honor. 

Each honored guest was invited to share about which branch of the armed forces they served and their personal connection to the school. Additionally, the students learned about the evolution of the trumpet and the part the bugle plays in the military from a member of Post 6249. The students performed a special song, giving thanks to all who served.
