The Door County community gathered Monday morning at the Southern Door High School to honor local veterans who served in the military. Before a packed Eagle gymnasium, all branches of the U.S. military were saluted in a sixty-minute program. Former Southern Door principal and U.S. Army Korean Veteran Thomas Van Lieshout was the guest speaker. He had a parting message to the students in attendance about planting seeds of harmony and respect.
Members of American Legion Posts, Amvets, and the VFW in Door County were recognized as well as all veterans in attendance. Veterans and guests were invited to a luncheon following the ceremony at the school. You can watch the entire video of Monday's Veterans Day ceremony at Southern Door High School below.
