    n William Ubbink, a Marine who served during the Vietnam era. He was also nominated by the Landt-Thiel American Legion Post 470.
    The ceremony will include musical presentations, as well as the playing of taps, and the presentation of colors.
    In addition to a welcome by Principal Eric Burke, there will be a student address by Jordan Hurley. Nick Blank will indroduce the honorees.
    There will be a rifle salute and reflections following remarks by the honorees or their representatives.
    Following the event, people are invited to the Port Washington Legion Hall on Lake Street for a light lunch.
    This year’s ceremony is being held on Friday, Nov. 10, because Veterans Day is on Saturday, when school is not in session.Daily Press
