Veterans Day honored by Calabash VFW
VFW Calabash Post No. 7288 joined hundreds of students, veterans, active duty members and others who came to the West Brunswick High School Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony presented by the Cadet Corps Command and Staff members. Each year, observers say that it cannot be improved upon but each year it gets better. The gymnasium was packed to the rafters to see performances by the school band, chorus, soloist, the school Female Drill Team, the dance team, special readings, a keynote speech by Retired Lieutenant General Joe Kinzer, and dueling Taps. There was even a contingent of the 82nd Airborne Division Chorus, which kept the large audience entertained with its disciplined drill display that gave way to such tunes as "My Girl," "Carolina on My Mind" and others. Standing ovations were frequent, not the least of which was offered for Grace Helms for her stirring rendition of "God Bless America." Once again, the prediction is that this year cannot be improved upon but don't be so sure of that.
