For the second year, Jefferson City High School’s Ambassador Club hosted Veterans’ Appreciation Night at Jefferson City High School, though the night was full of surprises.
More than 275 people attended the event that honors veterans with a dinner, Wall of Honor, memorabilia display, patriot tree and entertainment by the Boogie Woogie Babes.
Veterans representing World War II, Korean War, Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm, the Iraqi conflicts and Afghanistan war were present for a keynote address by Jake Vogel, Army Ranger and former JCHS student.
