!: PAGE 10 THE PRESS NOVEMBER 16, 2011 f VETERANS FROM PAGE Omer Ellingson donned their uniforms from more than 60 years ago to take part in the program. The Devils Lake High School JROTC Team who performed a drill demon- stration and Capitan JoDee Aubol of the 1/188th Air Defense Ar- tillery in Grand Forks, N.D., who was the guest speaker, also joined local veterans to emphasize the importance of the day. In Park River Mayor Dan Stenvold's welcome at Park River School's program he noted that 1 percent of the population of this country serve in the military --1 percent fight for the freedoms that everyone enjoys, He added that as one of them, his years of service were the best and worst years in his life and that he is "proud and glad to be a veteran." To begin the program members of the Park River American Legion and Park River American Legion Auxiliary joined the JROTC Team in posting the colors. Then, the Park River High School Band performed the National Anthem. And a student who also is a member of the military, Park River Senior Private Cody Lil- lico, wore his uniform and led the Pledge of Alle- giance. American Legion De- partment Membership Chair Eugene Kachena of- fered a reminder that not all veterans retum to be recognized. With a small table set for one, he ex- plained the meaning be- hind the lone place setting in the POW/MIA Remem- brance Service. "It is set for one, sym- bolizing the fact that mem- bers of our armed forces are missing from our ranks. They are referred to as POWs and MIAs. We call them comrades," he said.

Guest speaker, Aubol, offered a perspective from a woman in today's mili- tary. She said that 22 years ago when she was a senior in high school in Peters- burg, N.D., being in uni- form is something that she never thought she would do. And had she been asked to write a speech about Veterans Day then, she would not know what to say. She urged the audience to stop and think about the significance of the day. The armistice for World War I was signed on the 11 th hour of the 11 th day of the 11 th month. "We mark this day as a celebration of those who made victory possible," she said. Aubol asked those in the audience to raise a hand if they had a relative who served. The majority of the hands in the room went up. Taylor Nelson said that Veterans Day makes her think about her grandpa, Gerald Bourbanis, who served in the military. She added that the program was "inspiring." Kiri Kaste said the pro- gram emphasized the im- portance of Veterans Day. "My two grandpas and my uncle served," she said. Lexi Greicar added that her grandpa served as well. "These people are my heroes," she said. Lehman was pleased that the students made the connect-ion and said the school has agreed to do it all again next year -- mis- sion accomplished.
