SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Veterans Day is the day Americans unite to pay our respects to the brave men and women who have served our country. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month many people share a moment of silence in order to celebrate our veterans.

Fayetteville High School (FHS) comes together to host a Veterans Day Program every year, and this year is no different. This year’s event will be taking place this Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8:30 a.m. in the school’s gymnasium, and is hosted by the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).

The program centers around recognizing veterans from the surrounding communities. FHS has been hosting the program since the late 1960’s.

Some veterans enjoy the program so much that they attend the event every year. “As a matter of fact, we have a veteran from California that attends the program,” said board member of the TCBOE, Kathy Landers. “He has family in the Fayetteville community, and he plans a trip to visit his relatives, so he can attend the program, which is quite a compliment to the program.”

The guest speaker at the event will be Lieutenant Colonel Christopher N. Theilacker of the Alabama Army National Guard. He has been a member of the Alabama Army National Guard for more than 22 years, and has performed operations overseas as well as joined emergency response missions in Alabama. Theilacker is currently assigned as the Commander of 1st Battalion, 117th Field Artillery Regiment, headquartered in Andalusia.

After the program concludes, there will be a reception for the veterans.

All veterans are invited to attend the program, however it’s advised that they call Summer Thomas in the school office at 256-315-5550, or Linda Terry at 256-315-5577 if they plan to attend. They may also e-mail one of the following:  [email protected], [email protected] , or [email protected].
