All are welcome to join the KML students as we recognize and honor our country's military. We extend a special invitation to veterans, current military personnel, reservists, and their families. Each year our program centers on God's Word, and our theme this year will focus on a Remembrance Table for the Prisoners of War and Missing in Action (POW / MIA) personnel. The program will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2012, beginning at 9:20am. You can begin gathering in the school cafeteria after 9am. Guest speaker, Pastor Peter Schmidt from Bethlehem Lutheran in Menomonee Falls / Germantown, will lead the program which lasts approximately 40-50 minutes. Please take a moment to let us know if you will attend so that we can plan for adequate seating. Contact Wendy Zimmermann at 262-677-4051 x1101 or

Quote from someone in attendance... "This is the first year we attended the Veterans Day program and all the good things we have heard about the program are certainly true. It was emotional, it was community, it was a message of appreciation for the time these men and women have spent in the military, as well as their families who supported them, and the word 'sacrifice' certainly needs to include the sacrifice of God's own son, Jesus. Thank you for honoring the Veterans, but even more so for keeping your student body in touch with the ongoing sacrifice of those who serve and have served. What better way than for them to see faces of people they know! Again, our thanks!"
All veterans, current military personnel, reservists, and their families are invited to join the KML students as we recognize our country’s military on Veterans Day. Even if you have no connection to the armed forces at all, please consider joining us for this very memorable program honoring our service men and women.
