    Harbor Beach Community Schools held its' annual Veteran's Day breakfast Friday morning in the school Cafetorium. Veterans and their families enjoyed a breakfast prepared by the school cooks, and had performances from the Harbor beach school Band to enjoy. Two Vietnam veterans, who were helicopter pilots in that war were in attendance and shared their stories with the High School Football team. Several girls teams also were to take part. John Upthegrove told us he was a gun-ship pilot who had an 11 month tour, that included over 900 flights in 1969-70. He told us sometimes they would fly 10 hours a day.   Pastor Eric Kilmer was the speaker for the program and told us he would be talking about how the real war doesn't stop. That;'s the battle between good and evil, light and the darkness. Its a battle in each person to find purpose in what God has for us to over come. He was pastor at Our Savior Lutheran Church and School in Marlette for 24 years, and is currently a volunteer pastor at Peace Lutheran in Sandusky. Superintendent of Harbor Beach Schools Dr. Shawn Bishop told us that the cooks were going to have a quick turn around as after the veterans breakfast, they were going to have to prepare lunch for students even with a shortened day.
   

Right: veterans and their families enjoy a breakfast together.
