Roman Catholic High Will Honor Viet Vets

Philadelphia's Roman Catholic High School will hold its annual Veteran's Day Assembly to honor veteran service men and women. This year's assembly is dedicated specifically to veterans of the Vietnam War as this year marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the war.

Monday, November 9, 2015
9:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Roman Catholic High School (Gymnasium/Auditorium)
301 North Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107

The event is organized every year by the Roman Reserves, a club for students who through various activities support our military troops, both at home and away, throughout the school year, as well as, Student's Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). Both student clubs are organized by SHALOM Counselor Maureen Brown.

During the assembly, students and faculty will recite excerpts from letters written by members of the military from each conflict since the Revolutionary War. These letters reveal the personal sacrifice and commitment of those who have valiantly served our nation and preserved the freedoms we enjoy. Veterans including parents and guardians of current students, as well as, Roman alumni have been invited to attend. 
A small reception will also take place after the ceremony for all guests.
