  • Firebirds Honor Fallen Father, All Veterans During Assembly

    “This year one of our Firebirds reached out and shared with me that her father was killed in Afghanistan in 2011,” said Karen Hobson, a nearly 17-year U.S. Army veteran and FMS administrative assistant, who planned the school's Veterans Day assembly. Hobson presented a folded American flag to a group of students in the middle of the school’s gymnasium. The students performed a traditional flag folding ceremony. “The American flag drapes the casket with the remains of a fallen hero, with the field of blue placed over the left shoulder,” said Hobson. “The flag is folded and given to the next of kin. Would you please rise to honor those who never made it home with a moment of silence and the playing of taps,” said Hobson.
