DMS Marlin Family Veterans Honor Breakfast
Okaloosa County School District, Destin Middle School, and Daughters of the American Revolution invited students to bring their Marlin Family Veterans (parent, grandparent, extended family, etc…) to a special breakfast and event to honor all of their brave service and sacrifice on Friday, November 12th.
The event was held in conjunction with Legendary Marina, LuLu’s, and Emerald Coast Honor Games. A series of guest speakers shared the history, role, and pride of our Veterans and Emergency Responders and the related positive impact they have made on not only our personal quality of life but life in Okaloosa County, Northwest Florida, our State, and our Nation. One of many dynamic speakers was State Representative Mel Ponder.
Destin Middle School students displayed their Never Forget Memorial and the band played the Star-Spangled Banner as the Fire Department hoisted the enormous flag to kick off the two-day charity event.
