‘Commemorating the combatants’

Students and faculty of Goddard High School took a moment Thursday afternoon to thank veterans for serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Santiago Vasquez, a U.S. Army veteran, was awarded the high school’s former American flag from GHS students that also happened to be his grandchildren. As patriotic songs resonated throughout the high school gym in darkness, students surrounding the area used their phones’ flashlights to bring light, celebrate and literally highlight those who have dedicated their lives to fighting for the country, as well as those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
