A 12-year Army veteran is the guest speaker for the Veterans Day program Thursday in the Comet Gym of Charles City Middle School.
The speaker, Joe Taylor, is also the Middle School Principal and served a tour of duty in Iraq. The event is coordinated by the Charles City Chapter of FFA and member Lydia Staudt says anyone like Taylor who’s served in the armed forces is encouraged to attend.
Fellow FFA member Zach Chambers says the program will also include the color guard presentation with all military branches represented and more.
Current students who will be joining the military after high school are also expected to speak during the ceremony. Doors tomorrow will open at 9:30 a.m. and the program starts at 10 a.m.
If you can’t be there, you can hear the program live on 1580 AM and 103.3 FM KCHA as well as on KCHAnews.com.
