Park City Schools hosts Veterans Day program

Joyce Babcock, who served in the military as a nurse’s aide and x-ray technician from 1958 to 1964, spoke on behalf of area veterans at Park City’s Veterans Day celebration. Her comments were directed to a crowd that included the school’s entire student body.
After explaining that World War I’s armistice became official on Nov. 11, 1918, Babcock pointed out the irony of celebrating the war to end all wars.
“As you all know, we’ve been at war ever since that day,” she said. Babcock told the students that among the minor sacrifices made by every member of the military past and present are putting up with bad housing, strict rules and family separations. She said it took a select group of Americans to go that extra mile and to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
“You can bet if you go into a police station, you’ll find veterans among the members of the force,” Babcock said. “They are also more likely to volunteer, vote and live in poverty.”
Senior Heidi Froelich acted as the master of ceremonies. She also volunteered to help at the veterans dinner the night before. The Park City School band set the tone for the event with their rendition of, “The Star Spangled Banner.”
After the address by Babcock, Jean Bossen, a member of the Park City American Legion Auxiliary awarded a trophy to student Katie Hess for the poppy poster she designed. It came in second place in the state-wide contest.
The Auxiliary hosted a reception afterwards. Veterans and their families were treated to drinks, cake, cookies and brownies, as well as fellowship among their former comrades in arms.
