Deliver meals on wheels or join a service group that works to better the community, these are ways to honor the sacrifice of veterans, said Master Sergeant Emmett Klucas at the Nov. 13 Veterans Day program at Morris Area Schools.

Veterans sat in the center of the high school gym during the program. Although the gym had many veterans who attended the program, Klucas said some veterans may go unnoticed as they teach in school or do another type of job or live next door.

Klucas asked the audience to take time to think of a veteran they know and then, thank them.

"Find (a veteran) and shake their hands or give them a hug and say thank you," Klucas said.
