Charles Rogers It was a special day for some of the senior citizens who attend the Abe Stark Senior Center last Friday, as they were joined by youngsters from the John F. Kennedy Child Day Care Cen-ter, to pay tribute to military veterans on Veterans Day.

The youngsters were called upon to sing “God Bless America” and “Ame-rica, The Beautiful,” along with the “Star Spangled Banner” with the Abe Stark Choral Group in a patriotic salute to the vets.

The veterans, all having served in either World War II or the Korean Conflict — there are no Vietnam Conflict veterans in the senior center (yet) — were duly honored by the three-to-five year-old children as they saluted them and said “thank you” to these men who had served, most of them in battles that are now part of history.
