I was invited by my friend Tony Brown, president of the Galveston Independent School District's board of trustees, to come to Central Middle School on Veterans Day.

There I was introduced to Carrie Hunnicutt and Kenneth Maxwell, along with a number of veterans and school personnel. We were treated to breakfast and ushered into the auditorium where all the students and teachers were seated. There we got a standing ovation when we entered.

Our State Rep. Mayes Middleton gave a good speech and after the ceremony, I was asked to speak to the eighth-grade history class. To me, it was a great day for the veterans who were there to be honored by such a great group of young folks.

Thanks once again to Hunnicutt, Maxwell, Brown and Central Middle School students and personnel for their hospitality.
