Honoring Veterans in the Pikes Peak Region

Highlights from the parade in downtown Colorado Springs Nov. 4, 2017 and Ellicott School District 22 honors veterans on Nov. 9, 2017.

Veterans Day
Every year, all the elementary, middle school and high school students from Ellicott School District 22 honor the many veterans who have or have had children or grandchildren in the school district. And every year, World War II veteran Edward Kieffer attends the ceremony. Kieffer takes off his hat and says the Pledge of Allegiance with the students during the assembly on Thursday, November 9, 2017. Kieffer recently turned 95 years old and was with the 10th Mountain Division. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
