The Freeport schools combined efforts to honor local veterans and active service members on Thursday, November 9th in the FMS gym. Over 900 people including students, teachers, and community members were on hand to witness what could only be described as true patriotism exhibited by all who were in attendance. It took several months of planning and preparation to make this event happen and the efforts did not go unnoticed. Please see the program to view the list of people/groups who helped make this special event happen. A special thank you goes out to our guest speakers Lt. Devin Rushing and Staff Sgt. Monica Garcia.
