2018 Wilmot UHS Veterans Day Ceremony coverage (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

Those who have served the United States in the military were honored and remembered in a ceremony Friday morning at Wilmot Union High School.

The ceremony is an annual observance at the school, organized by Marlene A. Tilsner, a Wilmot social studies teacher.

The day started out with a breakfast for veterans. That was followed by the ceremony in the aptly named Veterans Memorial Fieldhouse.

The program started with the veterans in attendance walking in to music provided by the school’s Wilmot Symphonic Band. Here is video:

Other portions of the program included the significance of Veterans Day, a speech by Nick Bennett, US Marines (retired), from Wounded Warriors Project, an acknowledgment of all veterans present, a moment silence and Taps. Appropriate music was provided throughout by the band and WIlmot Choir students. Here is video of a medley of the songs of each branch of the military, during which veterans in attendance were asked to stand or wave during the playing of their song:

A different aspect of this year’s program was a Naval Re-Enlistment Ceremony. Three individuals, including Wilmot’s band director John Sorensen, were re-enlisted. Here is video of the ceremony:
