On Nov. 10, Addison Trail and Willowbrook welcomed veterans and first responders in honor of Veterans Day (Nov. 11).

Willowbrook hosted a breakfast for members of the Villa Park Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 2801 and other veterans, as well as the Villa Park Police Department, the Villa Park Fire Department and local service organizations. Participants also visited with social studies classes, and American flags lined the entryway to Willowbrook.

Addison Trail invited members of the Addison Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7446 and other veterans, as well as the Addison Police Department and the Addison Fire Protection District, to a luncheon. Participants watched a video and saw a display in the media center that featured photos and items of veterans with a connection to Addison Trail or the Village of Addison.

Both schools also recognized current students who plan to serve in the military.

During those Veterans Day events, Addison Trail and Willowbrook were presented with relics from the USS Arizona (12-by-12-inch pieces of the deckhouse), a battleship that was sunk during the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Each school also received a copy of the book “All the Gallant Men,” signed by co-author and USS Arizona survivor Donald Stratton. Addison Trail parent Mike Green is Stratton’s stepson, and Green presented the items to Addison Trail Principal Michael Bolden and Willowbrook Principal Dan Krause. Green also led the Pledge of Allegiance at Willowbrook.
