On Nov. 10, students at Elwood Middle School participated in a special Veterans Day assembly where Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern, Chairman of the Veterans and Seniors Committee, served as the keynote speaker and recognized service members in the community for their service.

Legislator Stern spoke to the students about the heroism of American service members and the sacrifices they have made abroad to protect the liberties we cherish in America. The veterans and service members, some of whom recently graduated from Elwood-John H. Glenn High School, shared personal stories from their time in the military and explained to the students what their service to our country meant to them.
“Throughout history, our veterans have demonstrated great bravery, sacrifice and devotion to duty to protect our freedom and our way of life,” Legislator Stern said. “It is a great privilege for all of us to hear their experiences and know that the service they gave to our great nation will be honored and remembered for generations to come.”
