A Day of Heroes: 2019 Veterans Day Assembly at OHHS

Posted on: November 5, 2019

More than 300 U.S. veterans took a moment to soak in the warmth as 2,700 cheering, clapping students welcomed them to OHHS.


It's a ceremony almost too beautiful for words. Among those sitting in the seats of honor were 97-year-old World War II veteran Spencer Essell; 2001-07 Iraqi Freedom veteran Ryan Blankenship (Class of 2000); Korean War veteran Victor Caproni; and brothers Tyler and Zack Doyle -- Class of 2018 and Class of 2019 -- who were home on leave from the U.S. Army to attend the Veterans Day Assembly.
