Ocracoke School students will honor the island’s citizens for their military service today at its annual Veterans Day Ceremony. The event will take place at 8:30 a.m. in front of the school.

This tradition was started in 2010 by Principal Walt Padgett, a veteran himself.

Students will raise the flag, sing the national anthem and  give statements of thanks.
