The high school invited about 150 veterans to the event.

At Westside High School, dozens were honored with applause Thursday morning as generations of veterans filed into the high school gym. "We like them to bring in pictures, artifacts, things they can share with the kids to give the kids a sense of what it's like to serve in our military". "I just can't imagine what they're doing for us overseas right now, fighting for our freedom and giving us their best". "We can all learn something by celebrating our outstanding service men and women". Batavia resident Jack Roderick said he served in the Navy for 12 years and regularly attends the Veterans Day program at West Aurora.
