BGA Family Honors Service Members on Veteran's Day
Posted on 11/11/2016
On this Veteran’s Day, the Bishop Ahr community honored United States veterans both living and deceased as well as the many BGA alumni who have served in the armed forces in order to protect the freedoms of all American citizens.

During homeroom, students and faculty prayed for our veterans while Mr. Joseph Cullinan played Taps on the trumpet. The service was led by BGA’s In Harm’s Way Club, which is advised by Mr. Nick Tonzola, its members, former staff member Master Sargent Gary Pacciano of the US Army, and BGA alumnus Petty Officer Alan Bridges of the US Navy.
Mr. Tonzola, Mr. Gary Pacciano, and the students of the In Harm's Way Club then took part in a Veteran's Day service at Genesis Healthcare in Plainfield, NJ, which included a rendition of America the Beautiful performed by Senior Courtney McQuade on the bagpipes.

As a community, we pray that we may never forget what our country has asked of them and what they have given in return. We also ask for the resolve to build a world in which war will be pursued no more.
