John Soliman and Associates attended a great Veteran’s Day Ceremony at a local Riverview, FL Elementary school. The 5th grade did a great job during their presentation. They had the Veteran’s walk in as the whole school clapped and cheered.
The Riverview High School NJROTC Color Guard presented arms/colors (American Flag and Navy flag) for the program. After the whole crowed did the Pledge of Allegiance and then sang the National Anthem. It was awesome to see the Veteran’s salute all at the same time, even some of the kids in the crowed mimicked them.
The kids get excited over seeing the NJROTC Drill Teams. The Riverview High School NJROTC Unarmed Exhibition Drill Team was first up, they showed precision and team work.
There were fifth graders that shared some of their written honors to the Veteran’s that they had worked on just for the program. You can tell they really worked hard on them. One little girl’s father who was in Veteran’s section had teachers in tears as she wrote her essay about her father and thanking him for everything he has done for our country.
The kids were up on their knees trying to get a good view of the Riverview High School NJROTC Armed Exhibition Drill Team, with that the kids started chatting at a low rumble with excitement.
The kids nearly came unglued, they were struck with amazement when they watched the Exhibition Drill Team stunts!
The whole crowed really enjoyed both the Riverview High School NJROTC Exhibition Drill Teams.
At the closing of the ceremony, they hit you hard with Lee Greenwood’s – Proud to be an American. There were tears in teachers, parents, and kids alike. It was absolutely awesome to listen to the kids sing to the song with such proudness!
