Albany honored local veterans, as well as all those who served their country, during a special program Nov. 11 at the Blattner Energy Arts Theatre. Middle and high school students, along with community members, attended the program.

Serving as master of ceremonies was Stephen Posch, an Army National Guard retiree after serving 21 1/2 years. Albany High School students of the choir sang the national anthem and both choir and band performed an arrangement of songs from each military branch.

Posch recognized each veteran present and gave a brief summary of their service and colors were posted by the Albany American Legion Color Guard.
