The event held in the school's gymnasium on Tuesday included veterans speaking to Franklinville Elementary about their military service and current civilian life.

The event, held two days before Veterans Day, brought students together with members of the nearby Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7472 and other veterans for readings, music and tributes - including a performance of "The Brave" by the school's fourth- and fifth-grade chorus.

"Like any teenager I was afraid and didn't know what to expect, but I knew my nation called me to serve", he wrote.

The Student Council planted flags on the front lawn of the school to show support for local vets. Three featured veterans who will be honored during the program: Norman Elwood, Army Reserve, Sgt. 1st class; Rick Elwood: US Air Force, Tech Sgt. E6; and Henry Rappleyea: Army/Air Force, Sr. The ceremony included a moment of silence.

"I called the principal and asked her if she would be interested in having us putting on a presentation for a single class", Thompson said.

The event will feature the presentation of wreaths, remarks from area veterans, an honorary 21 gun rifle salute and the playing of "Taps". The program was presented for over 400 students.

Students throughout the Custer School District paused from their regular classes to learn about the important individuals who have served our country.

The memorial park, with its broad wooden benches, native stone and bronze military plaques, was built in 2007, largely with private donations, said Van Dalsen. "I feel like children are learning about the military through video games or movies and not talking to veterans".

Dan Clark, social studies chairman at the high school, encouraged the audience to gain a different perspective from Rep. Johnson's civilian background.

"Of all the stories she told, the most powerful were about them", he said.

Julianna Uphoff, Custer Elementary 5th grader says, "Veterans day means when you kind of celebrate what the veterans have done for America".
