St. Barbara School held its annual Veterans Day Assembly Nov. 11. It was the 25th year the school celebrated and honored the nation’s military. St. Catherine’s Academy, under the direction of Cpt. Ramos, and the school’s Color Guard Unit and bugler paid tribute to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces. The kindergarten class sang “God Bless America” and other grade levels sang and recited poems. The most poignant moment came when fifth-grade students honored 1996 graduate and Chief Petty Officer Jason Finan, who died in October while fighting for freedom in Iraq.
