Evan Zalar, 8th grade, and his mother Cindy were able to bring Evan’s father, Commander John Zalar U.S. Navy, to the breakfast via Skype from Afghanistan.

What is Veterans Day? Veterans Day is a day to thank the people who served in the military, the ones who died fighting in the military, and the ones who are currently serving. In the year 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day, now known as Veterans Day. 

GBMS celebrates by holding the annual Veterans Breakfast. Mrs. Freeman’s advanced history class hosted the breakfast this year. They provided warm breakfast dishes, pastries, and beverages. Ms. Player’s newspaper class created a backdrop for families to take photos in front of. Students also made patriotic stars to hang in the windows, and patriotic “Wordles,” which are pictures made up of themed words. Lastly, our Symphonic Band played songs including, “The National Anthem” and “The March of The Armed Forces.” GBMS put together a great event for all to remember.  

GBMS teachers who are also veterans: Mr. Adam Gutshall, Mr. Kevin Spect, Mr. Dennis Dolfie, and Mr. Von DeKozan.

There are many other ways for students to honor our veterans. It can be as much as visiting a nursing home and giving gifts, to just a little thank you. Jenna Moore states, “Veterans are important because they protect our country and our families.” There are many veterans who now work at GBMS. For example, Mr. Gutshall and Mr. Specht are two of just many teachers that are veterans. 

There are many ways to thank and honor a veteran, however a little thank goes a long way!  

The entire Gutshall family enjoyed the breakfast, including GBMS teacher Mr. Gutshall and sons, 6th grader Marshall (far left) and 8th grader Caden (far right).
