BREWSTER, N.Y. -- Brewster High School presented "A Salute to Veterans" concert to honor our veterans and their families for their personal sacrifice on Nov. 10.

The Marching Band began the concert with a rendition of J.P. Sousa's "Stars and Stripes" followed by the Presentation of Colors. 

Speakers included students explaining the origins of Veteran's Day, John Brawley describing jobs in the military, and keynote speaker SMsgt. Matthew Castellano detailing the sacrifices and rewards of serving our country. Msgt. Scott Lowry read the poem "Freedom isn't Free" by Kelly Strong. 

Justin Ferrara explained the POW/MIA Remembrance followed by "Taps" played by Sarah Comer and Sarah Mitchell. 

To show their thanks to all those veterans in attendance, the BHS Combine Choirs, BHS Wind Ensemble & The U.S. Fleet Forces Woodwind Quintet performed the "Salute to the Armed Forces" where veterans were asked to stand when their heard their song for their particular branch of the armed forces. 

This annual tradition is a combine effort that not only teaches students to thank those who serve our country but also give them the opportunity to personally express those thanks.
