WAKEFIELD - Veterans were honored guests and participants in a Veterans Day program last Monday at the Wakefield-Marenisco K-12 School in Wakefield.

The program, for which Richard Bolen was master of ceremonies, began with a karate tribute by Ruk Betlewski of Ironwood. It was called "A Salute to Soldiers."

Second- and third-grade students sang the national anthem, as well as "This Flag We Fly."

Commander Eddo Maki of the Wakefield American Legion was the guest speaker.  The Wakefield-Marenisco band performed two songs,  "American Heroes March," and "A Tribute to Armed Forces."

VFW and American Legion members conducted firing squad rifle volleys, followed by "Taps" played by Catherine Baker. 

Following the program, students and staff lined up to shake hands with veterans and to thank them for their service.
