Cliff Anstey was one of several Vets who was honored recently by students and staff during lunch for Veterans Day.

Cliff Anstey was a medic in the United States Air Force when he saved the lives of four pilots who ejected out of an airplane just before crashing.

“It was an honor to serve my country and there’s lots of pride in doing so,”  said Anstey was one of many Vets who was honored by STMS recently during lunch for Veterans Day. The veteran was invited by Crystal Anstey his daughter and Parker Sibley, his step-daughter.

Veterans Day is a U.S federal holiday. It is a time to honor and thank those who are serving in the military and are still with us. Veterans Day, however, is different from Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day to reflect and remember those who lost their lives in service to their country.

Colby Posey’s day, a Navy Vet, also took time out to be honored during the Veteran’s Day Lunch.

Students and staff decided to show Anstey and other Vets their appreciation by inviting them to lunch. Throughout each lunch, numerous Vets from all branches of the military were seen eating and talking with students. Students enjoyed hearing stories about their service. “I  am very proud of my father for his service, “Crystal Anstey said.

Bryanna Young, a 6th grader, enjoyed having a dad who is an Air Force Vet spend time during lunch.
