Brewer students honor Veterans at annual assembly

BREWER - It's a time to remember those who not only fought for freedom, but who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Students at Brewer High School were doing their part to make sure every branch of the military was honored with its annual Veteran's Day assembly on Thursday.


Student council president, Maria Maxsimic, said "This is so essential to put on because we need to express our gratitude towards veterans. They're aren't always people who have support systems. This really shows our support and makes Veterans Day."


Speakers from all branches of the military shared their experiences and reasons why they chose to enlist.


The ceremony also paid tribute to soldiers who remain prisoners of war and missing in action.
