Midway Middle School hosted a Veteran’s Day breakfast on Nov. 10.
It was attended by former and current members of our military. Troops from the school’s unit sponsor, the 3-7th Cavalry, were on hand to post the colors for the program in the cafeteria,  and led in the Pledge of Allegiance.
After a short welcome by Principal Debra Frazier, seventh-grade science teacher and retired Command Sgt. Maj. Garry Lawson spoke about the importance of Veteran’s Day.
“To us, today is not about a day off of work, or a sale at the mall, it is about remembering those we served with and those who are still serving,” Lawson said.
The featured speaker was eighth-grade social studies teacher Alvin Jackson, a retired first sergeant and pastor at St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church in Hinesville. In his address, Jackson pointed out the many contributions our military has made to this nation over the centuries. He made sure to thank both former and current members of the armed forces.
The breakfast ended as Frazier passed out copies of a poem as a memento to the veterans.
