23rd Annual Custer School District Veterans Day Program

October 20, 2017

Custer, SD – Each year the Custer School District presents an hour long program to honor its veterans.  The program is sponsored by Custer American Legion Post #46 and completely run by the students.  It consists of Civil Air Patrol flag posting, patriotic music performed by all classes, the band and the choir, POW/MIA ceremony, remembrance of deceased veterans from the past year, individual recognition of each veteran in attendance by Custer Cub Scouts and the 6th Grade Class, and Civil Air Patrol flag retirement.

Building on its success of the last 4 years, the veterans snacks and social immediately follows the CSD Veterans Day Program in the Custer Armory.  Conducted jointly by the Custer County Democratic and Republican parties, it provides light snacks to our veterans and an opportunity for them to relax and chat.  Memories are swapped and smiles exchanged.  This is a wonderful example of how we still socialize in Custer; America – the way it used to be.
