Each year we celebrate Veterans Day with a newfound respect for those who serve. On this Veterans Day, Palmer Trinity School in Palmetto Bay invited veterans and their families to a breakfast to honor our local vets.
Among others, on-hand were Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, County Commissioners Daniella Levine Cava and Pepe Diaz, Palmetto Bay’s Mayor Eugene Flinn, Vice Mayor John DuBois, Councilwoman Karyn Cunningham, Village Attorney Dexter Lehtinen (also a vet), Cutler Bay Vice Mayor Ernie Sochin (also a vet) and School Commissioner Dr. Larry Feldman.
About twenty veterans heard Palmer Trinity’s Head of Upper Schools Ashley Chapman lead a short program to honor their service. A quartet played music and student James Bailey (class of 2018) said, “You set such a good example for us to follow. We are trying hard, but often fail to reach the high standards you set.”
Cutler Bay Vietnam veteran George Cadman, III summed it up best, "All of these veterans here today supported and defended the United States Constitution. They took an oath and were willing to risk their lives to defend the people at home and keep the country free. I appreciate what Palmer Trinity has done here and appreciate the recognition."
