Havelock-area schools honor veterans with ceremonies

The veterans, Bratt said, are regular citizens that often don’t get noticed.

"There are all kinds of veterans all around us but I don’t even know it," Bratt said. "Sometimes I would like to thank the veterans because they might be in the same room and you might not even know it."

"I think it’s good that you can spend time with you parents who are in the military who have been gone a long time to say thank you," said fifth-grader Ematrius McCoo. "They’ve been gone for like six months and you would really miss them. And then when they come back you would be so surprised and they will be surprised too and start crying. Thank you for surviving and doing great."
