North JROTC Leads Veterans Day Ceremony
The North High School Marine Corps JRTOC unit hosted their 8th annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Friday, November 8. The auditorium was full of teachers and staff along with several local veterans who were honored guests. The ceremony included the North choir signing the National Anthem and God Bless America, remarks by veteran Scott Ford, and a tribute to POWs. The highlight of the ceremony may have been at the very end, when Sergeant Nicholas Gettler, USMC - son of North's JROTC instructor Mike Gettler - arrived to present a flag to his grandfather Larry Gettler, himself a veteran of the Korean War. The younger Gettler's appearance was a surprise for his grandparents as he had just arrived back from Afghanistan this morning.
