Today we we had the honor of having veterans visit Sierra Bonita! The veterans who came served during Vietnam, Korean War, Desert Storm, and the War in Iraq. We would like to thank all those who have fought for our freedoms and made our country the greatest place to live! Our very own Kindergartener McKinlee West had her great grandfather visit as one of the Veteran's!

On Veteran's Day, we honor ALL who answered to a service to call

Soldier's young, and soldiers old, fought for our freedom, BRAVE and BOLD.

Some have lived, while others have died, and all of them deserve OUR pride.

We're proud of all the soldiers who, kept thinking of red, white, and blue.

They fought for us and all our rights; they fought through many days and nights

And though we may not know EACH name, we thank ALL Veteran's just the same.
