This past Wednesday, November 9th Hopatcong High School gathered as a student body to honor our Veterans, to remember their achievements, their courage and their dedication, and to say thank you for their sacrifices.
The service members we will honor on Friday come from all walks of life, but they all shared several fundamental qualities. They possessed courage, pride, determination, selflessness, dedication to duty and integrity – all the qualities needed to serve a cause larger than one’s self.
We honored a Hopatcong 1999 graduate, US Marine Sergeant Hunter Guiles, and presented him with a Certificate of Excellence, for his tireless efforts in service of the United States Marine Corps. his dedication to our country and to the military is highly commendable.
