PERTH AMBOY — On Monday, Nov. 7, Perth Amboy Catholic School honored War Veteran’s from World War II, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Veterans came from the Hopelawn VFW, as well as friends and family of the faculty and students. Veterans were welcomed with a standing ovation; a few were so overcome with emotion that they were speechless.
Each veteran spoke a little about themselves and which wars they fought in. Each student made decorations and thank you cards and gifts. After the ceremony the veterans were welcomed into the classrooms to answer a few more questions from the students.
The event was organized by third grade teacher Melissa Rainone.
