The LLE family had a program to celebrate these heroes and then provided a Veteran’s Day Luncheon to honor and celebrate our Veterans and First Responders. We gave tribute to the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, the U.S. National Guard, and First Responders.
During the program, the LLE Band played a song; Miss Billie A. Williamson, their teacher, also played "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Master Sergeant Victor Atlas, a retiree of the Airforce, was the guest speaker for the program on November 12, 2018. Master Sgt began his military career with basic training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio Texas. Directly following by technical training school at Peterson Air Force Base, Denver Colorado.
