Perry Tech Veterans Assembly

Students at Perry Technical Institute in Yakima take a moment to honor our veterans during an assembly this morning.

Yakima City Council member Dave Ettl addressed the student body about his time in the service and gave thanks to the students who have served or are currently serving in the military.

One student served in the Navy in Afghanistan and says he is thankful his peers are recognizing veterans service.

"Being over there and coming back here, you don't think at all about being a veteran, or being any different than anybody else," said Shane Baldridge, "It's nice to kind of come back and see that people do appreciate and do see you do those things and you make those sacrifices for the country."

There are currently 41 veterans enrolled at Perry Tech, including 7 faculty members.
