West Aurora High School Hosts a Moving Salute to America’s Veterans

Thousands of Veterans and their families have been visiting the campus of West Aurora HS. Thousands of Aurora students had the opportunity to meet and thank American Heroes; Maj. Gen. Max Baratz, Alumni of WAHS ’52, Lt. Gen. Randall Rigby, who had the distinct honor and privilege of introducing Medal of Honor recipients Sgt. Allen Lynch and Sgt. Sammy Lee Davis. There are only 79 living Medal of Honor recipients. The opportunity to see both of these heroes in one place is considered a “once in a lifetime” event. West Aurora HS pulled out all of the stops with their choirs, wind symphony and marching band setting a remarkable patriotic tone for the assemblies. The Moving Vietnam Wall was on display adjacent to the Healing Field of 2,013 American Flags waving in the November breeze and tagged with remembrances and dedications to soldiers living and deceased who stood guard for our freedom.

Chairman of Patriotism Rudy Keller was in a hundred places at once. Gold Star Families of First Lt. Timothy Ryan, Private Nicholas Howe and Specialist Christopher Patterson were presented American Flags and Medallions by the Generals and Medal of Honor Recipients; Heroes honoring Heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice. It’s been a remarkable week in Aurora that will provide a lifetime of memories. Every branch of the service was honored, as was every man and woman who wore or wears the uniform of the United States of America.

Old Second Bank was a proud sponsor to help bring this event to West Aurora High School. It’s been an honor and privilege to be able to participate. We salute every volunteer who made this possible. To those who’ve protected our freedom over every generation, we salute you and thank you on this special day and every other day. Without you, nothing would be possible.
