Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans — past and present — on November 11 in honor of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I. We especially give thanks to BSD’s many veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. Six BSD veterans stepped forward to tell the story of their military service.

Individual stories will be added to this playlist.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
