The bleachers and gym floor was filled with area residents who attended the annual Veterans Day program in Henning. The program featured Dave Stueve as the guest speaker, songs by K-5 students, as well as the battle songs for each of the branches of the military. One of the more popular songs is the Air Force theme in which kindergarten students “fly” through the crowd. Quilts of Valor were also distributed to local veterans. Among the people who received a Quilt of Valor was George Smith. Monica Hansen spoke on several occassions during Friday’s Veterans Day program.
