Students from Blanchard Elementary School gathered in the cafeteria last week to celebrate Veterans Day. A color guard, made up of members of the Mercer-Prieto VFW Post 2043 and the Korean War Veterans Association-Ventura County Chapter 56 lined up on the stage. Vietnam veteran Rey Frutos read a moving poem entitled “What is a Veteran.” Students also sang patriotic songs. Photo by Brian D. Wilson
