COAL TOWNSHIP — Honor and respect were on full display Friday morning at Shamokin Area Middle-High School as a group of U.S. veterans sat in front of the student body to hear expressions of appreciation for their military service to our country.

The Veterans Day assembly program, which featured a combination of heartfelt words and stirring music, lasted approximately 45 minutes. Following the singing of the national anthem and Pledge of Allegiance the veterans were introduced.
