Revolutionary Guard – Pataskala
The Hocking Valley Chapter served as the color guard at a special presentation to honor veterans at the Licking Heights South Elementary School in Pataskala on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11th. The six HVC color guard members marched into a full gymnasium of thrilled children accompanied with their teachers, some parents, and dozens of veterans related to the children.
During the program the SAR compatriots spoke to the audience and described a short history of their Revolutionary ancestors. After the program, they were invited to speak to a class, and then were asked to mingle with the children in the cafeteria. The children were very well-behaved and curious, asking many questions and the Hocking Valley compatriots enjoyed their morning with the children immensely.
