Sherwood Christian Academy held its annual Veterans Day program to honor local veterans .

The program was held in the sanctuary of Sherwood Baptist Church.

Students, parents and other guests filled the church. The program opened with a parade of veterans that honored each branch of the military.

The Headmaster of the school, Dr. Brian Dougherty said, “"When Veterans Day comes around its our opportunity to remind the students this is our time, even though we ought to be thankful 365 days a year, this is our time to thank the veterans that are in attendance with us and those they might run into in the community today.”

Veterans Day is Saturday November 11th.

This is the 15th year the school has had this program.
