Bishop Hogan Memorial School and the Chillicothe Middle School both held Veterans Day assemblies on Thursday. Larry Warren (left), with the local VFW and American Legion posts, spoke at both assemblies about the contests and events that students in said age range can participate in, via those organizations. On the wall in the BHMS cafeteria, there was displayed a collection of pictured veterans. World War II vet Tom Murphy (below) spoke to students at CMS, recalling emotionally his witnessing of Japan's surrender and his long-awaited return home.
