Each year the students and staff in our schools observe Veterans Day. The Mt. Lebanon School District joins the nation to recognize and honor all those Americans who have served or continue to serve our country in military service.
Today, there are more than 25 million veterans living among us. This day reminds us that we need to pause and recognize the contributions made by our veterans and those currently serving, and thank them for their devotion to our country. We must not allow the passage of time or the comforts of peace to erase the memory of their service and sacrifices.
As we observe Veterans Day, please take some time to learn more about the accomplishments of our nation's veterans, their dedication and courage, and their willingness to risk their lives to preserve our liberty. On this day and every day please do not forget the members of your family, neighbors or members of the community who have served our country. Please keep our present service personnel and their families in your thoughts at this time as they serve throughout the world.
