Editors Note:  Thank you to everyone who submitted a veteran's name to be a part of this page.  I will continue to add names as they are received throughout the month of November as a tribute because veterans should be recognized every day, not just of November 11th.
Michel White (Poolville ISD) has prepared the following PowerPoint picture presentation which also honors veterans of ISD students. Please take a look to see twenty-three more local veterans. You can access the presentation by clicking on the flag.
