Tomorrow is VETERAN’S DAY! Honor your Active Duty Military and Retired Service members by Thanking them for their service to our country and for a job WELL DONE!!

The Meridian High School Media Class/Team will be collecting donations to present to the Southern Illinois Honor Guard and Honor Flight organizations that Honor Veterans. This week and next week, the Media Class Team will be going to different classes in Elementary, Jr. High and High School to inform students about the Honor Guard and the Honor Flight Programs.  They will also give out an Honor Donation Form for students and staff to make a donation in honor of their friends and family that serve or severed in the military.  We will post the forms around the school.

The Honor Guard Organization is a group of volunteers that ceremoniously welcome important visitors to the area.  They also escort the veteran’s casket in a funeral and provide American Flags to the Veteran’s Family. Sometimes, they also provide a Gun salute.

The Honor Flight is a national network of independent groups working together to honor our nation’s veterans with an all-expenses paid trip to the Memorials in Washington, D.C, a trip many of our veterans may not otherwise be able to take. They serve terminally ill veterans from any era of service.
