To the editor:

We are writing this to share with Levy County what a wonderful tribute to military service personnel of all branches both past and present we had the pleasure of attending.  This took place on Monday evening, Nov. 9, at our local Williston Elementary School. 

We were invited by our niece, Sarah Smith who attends the fifth grade at WES. 

She and her fellow classmates performed the combination musical/drama led by the first year music teacher, Carrie Olson and assisted by various other faculty. 

It was a very heartfelt,  moving presentation that honored and paid tribute to those brave men and women who serve this great county so honorably and faithfully without reserve. 

At one point all people present who had served in any branch of the military were asked to stand and presented with a certificate of appreciation.

  In this day and time of uncertainty and tribulation within the world this really was a stand up salute to those we owe our freedom to. 

Thank you, students and WES.  I hope you will consider repeating the performance again so other citizens can attend.

James, Janet and Brittany Neal
