Reader's View: Vets Day concert commendable, memorable

It was a memorable concert with specially chosen patriotic and historical music selections to honor those who served in our Armed Forces.

We are part of The Trust Project.

On Friday, Nov. 11, the Duluth East High School bands held the 24th annual veterans concert to a packed auditorium, with the presentation of the flags and the Star Spangled Banner. It was a memorable concert with specially chosen patriotic and historical music selections to honor those who served in our Armed Forces.

A special presentation, “Till Men No Longer Die In War,” will be remembered, as it recalled past wars in which our country entered with great sacrifices. The finale saluted our veterans.

I commend the students who practiced for weeks for this concert as well as the East High music directors, East High staff, and parents who participated. They all made this concert commendable.
