Veterans Day at LCM HS

Special to The Leader

On Wednesday, November 11, at 11:11 a.m., Little Cypress-Mauriceville will hold their annual Veteran’s Day ceremony. It will be held in the gymnasium of the school, 7327 Highway 87 North in Orange. Staff who are veterans, student and staff family members and Veterans in the community are all invited to participate. The veterans will meet in the lobby of the high school auditorium at 10:45 a.m. for seating instructions.

One unique feature of this tribute is that the honor guard and trumpeters wear actual United States military uniforms from different eras. Bernard Perricone, government teacher at LCM HS, is a collector of military paraphernalia and outfits the students participating in the event. The sweepstakes-winning LCM Choir will also perform, as will trumpeters from the LCM Band, also a sweepstakes winning organization. Drew Crochet will be this year’s veteran speaking to the group. This is always a moving ceremony.
