Video: Honoring Veterans and Their Families

A closer look at the importance of Veterans Day

In 1947, Raymond Weeks organized the first National Veterans Day to honor all veterans. The country has continued this tradition every year since then. Sometimes, it is thought that Veterans Day is only to honor the soldiers’ sacrifices and forget about the sacrifices made by their loved ones. Watch seniors Carissa Dawson and Gracie Henderson along with Chemistry teacher Mrs. Karnafel, alumni Lindsay Prifogle, Nancy Baker and Veteran Jeff Baker share their stories.
