The Clearwater community came together Monday morning to honor the community's local veterans at a special Veteran's Day program at Clearwater High School.
The event started with the veterans marching in, followed by the national anthem, performed by the CHS band, and the elementary students leading the Pledge of Allegiance.
Clearwater seniors spoke about the history of several different monuments and memorials, throughout the United States, built to honor veterans and their service.
Seniors Amy Thiele and Jacob Long shared their experiences at Cornhusker's Boys and Girls State this past summer and thanked the local legion for sponsoring their trips to Lincoln.
Finally, the Clearwater band performed God Bless America and the choir sang Proud to be an America, by Lee Greenwood.
The ceremony concluded with the band playing Taps and the local veterans marching out.
