In November, the faculty and staff of Landmark High School in Spanish Fork had their annual Veterans Day assembly in connection with retiring the American flag that has flown over the school during the past year. The flag retirement program was conducted by the veterans who work at LHS. Assistant Principal Scott Carson talked about the proper way to retire the American flag. The flag was retired by Howard Bonzo, Todd Killian, Mark VanVoorhis, Paul Dopp, Roy Devenish and KC Rawlinson while the students stood quietly outside around the flag pole watching the flag be retired and replaced. The students showed great respect during the time the flag was being lowered, burned and replaced with the new flag.

After the flag retirement program, the faculty, staff and students went into the gym and learned about all the different staff members who have served in the military. It was such an honor to hear from our veterans as they shared their stories about why they joined the military and where they have served. At the end of assembly, Todd Killian sang “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood as a tribute to all those who have served in the military.
