Grundy Veterans

Published: October 28, 2014

October 28, 2014

Dear Grundy Parents,

When Francis Scott Key wrote the “Star Spangled Banner” almost 200 years ago, he called America “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”  Those words are as true today as they were then.  Throughout this Nation’s history, America’s soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coastguardsmen have bravely answered the call to defend our freedom, to aid our friends and allies, and to turn back aggressors.  With Veterans Day fast approaching, we would like to honor America’s veterans for their service to our country.  If you would like the veterans in your family (living or deceased) to be recognized on our website, please email the veteran’s name, relationship to your children, and branch of service to aimee.o’


Example:  Carl Saunders, Caleb Saunders’ grandfather, US Navy


To view our current listing of Grundy family veterans, please click here.

Please join us on Monday, November 10th at 2:00 for a very special Veterans Day Ceremony.  All veterans who attend the ceremony will be recognized.  We encourage all staff, students, and parents to wear patriotic red, white, and blue.
