PHOTOS: Northbrook Salutes Its Veterans
Residents gather at Maple Junior High to honor local heroes.
Veterans, local officials, and residents gathered at Northbrook Junior High School Friday morning for a commemoration of Veterans Day. A good sized crowd sat solemnly in the school's gymnasium listening to several veterans recount their experiences in the armed forces, and Village President Sandy Frum spoke about her experience as the mother of a veteran.
At several points during the ceremony current and former service members were asked to stand and be recognized for their service to the country. Northbrook's Fire and Police Departments were also honored for their service protecting the local community. Closing the ceremony, guests gathered on the front steps of the school for the playing of "Taps" and a gun salute.
