The West Point Middle School Fine Arts Department presented a Veterans Day program titled “Sounds and Stories of Our Nationˮ on Nov. 8 at the WPMS.

Students from sixth grade ELA, seventh and eighth grade drama, chorus, guitar, intermediate band and advanced band presented a cross section of the history of our country through patriotic songs, skits portraying Army veterans and poetry.

Community partners such as Scouts BSA Troop 23, the West Point Schools PTO and the West Point Chapter of Daughters of the U.S. Army supported the event.

Veterans from the surrounding communities joined family and friends of the performers for the program.

Soldiers from the U.S. Army Garrison West Point Color Guard and representatives from active and Reserve Army units throughout the Northeast marched in the Veterans Appreciation Parade in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Nov. 5.
