TUCSON – Local veteran, current service members, first responders and their families were honored during the Legacy Traditional School-Northwest Tucson Veterans Day Breakfast on Friday.

Veterans were honored during the school’s daily flag ceremony.

Legacy students and staff also organized a special breakfast for veterans and their families.

Students also recited a poem called Thank You, Soldiers by Michael and Angela Souders during the ceremony.

When I lay my head down every night And go to sleep in peace, I can stay there knowing all is well While you’re standing on your feet. Keeping watch, protecting shore to shore In the air and oceans, too
Defending freedom at all cost,
For the red, white and the blue. Thank you, Oh thank you
Men and women, brave and strong,
To those who served so gallantly We sing this grateful song.
To the soldiers who have traveled on To countries far and near
In peace and war you paid the price For the cause you hold so dear.
That we may wake each morning bright And know that freedom rings
Because of your great sacrifice Your country joins to sing…
Thank you, Oh thank you Men and women brave and strong, To those who served so gallantly
We sing this grateful song. Thank you, Oh thank you
Men and women brave and strong, To those who served so gallantly
We sing this grateful song.
Michael and Angela Souders
