Last year the assembly drew more than 120 veterans to take part in the ceremony and to be honored. The registration deadline is Friday, Nov 1.z

Participating veterans should arrive at the MHS District Office building, just west of the high school, between 7:30 and 8 a.m. They will be bussed to the high school in time to be escorted by a drumline to the main gym for the ceremony. Once the event has concluded all veterans will be honored at a brunch from 10 to 11 a.m. in the District Office building.
The guest speaker for the event will be Sargent Allen J. Lunch, who received the Medal of Honor for his service during the Vietnam War. He is also the author of the book Zero to Hero.
