Friday morning at Lyme-Old Lyme High School.

“The service members we honor today came from all walks of life, yet they share so many of the same qualities,”

high-school senior Matthew McCarthy

told attendees at the school assembly.

“They possess courage, pride, determination, selflessness and integrity:

all the qualities needed to serve a cause larger than oneself.”

The school’s Veterans Day assembly featured music by the Lyme-Old Lyme High School Band and Chorus, speeches, and applause for the more than 30 veterans in attendance.
