Every Veterans Day, Boys' Latin has held an assembly and wreath-laying ceremony honoring all veterans for nearly forty years. This year Butch Maisel H'09, co-curator of our Center for Military History and Headmaster Chris Post shared remarks about brotherhood in the military and asked us to remember the many Boys' Latin alumni who have served our country. James Eichelberger '20, who currently attends the United States Coast Guard Academy, joined Mr. Post to lay the wreath.
Following assembly, James visited with our 7th grade technology class to talk about his time in the military since graduating from Boys' Latin. He served a year of active duty and is now in his sophomore year at the Coast Guard Academy. He shared some amazing stories about active engagements, collaborating with the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and even meeting the President. BL middle schoolers were highly engaged and asked great questions. Thank you, James for your service and coming back to Lake Avenue to share your experiences.
Thank you to all who have served.
