Sixty-two flags welcome visitors to Elizabeth Middle School this week, and each honors a veteran.
For this Veterans Day, the EMS chapter of the National Junior Honor Society conducted a fundraiser in September and October. For $10, participants could purchase a flag to represent a special veteran in their lives. Proceeds benefit Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and their free, life-changing services for our nation’s ill and injured heroes and their families. The flags will be displayed today through Nov. 11.
For more than 100 years, DAV has helped veterans of all generations live high-quality lives with respect and dignity. More than 1 million veterans each year receive benefit assistance, meaningful employment opportunities and free transportation to VA medical appointments.
“Each flag represents a veteran and our unwavering commitment to serving all who’ve given so much for our country,” said Marc Burgess, DAV CEOand National Adjutant. “It’s an easy way to pay homage to a veteran in your life.”
