Boonsboro High School junior Etta Short said the Veterans Day ceremony that was held Friday in the school gymnasium was a fitting way to honor Americans for their military service. But despite the patriotic music that was played and the speeches that were given, she said she believed veterans hardly get the amount of respect they deserve. “I don't think some people realize how much they did for our country,” she said. Mannie Gentile, a Navy veteran and interpretive park ranger at Antietam National Battlefield, told the students in his keynote address that many of them were no different than veterans who have gone off to fight in the past.
