iHistory Welcomes Navy Vets for Veterans’ Day

On November 11, 2019 New Covenant will host three retired Navy officers at a Veterans’ Day Assembly.  iHistory is a program that brings grandparents and friends of the school – people who lived history – to tell their stories.  Our guests (l to r) are Cpt Michael Connolly, Commander Michael Reeves, and Cpt Neil Bohnert.  These men will give a live demonstration to the entire student body of the military bugle and the Boatswain’s pipe.  With a series of calls or sounds, military officers on the battlefield or aboard ship could command troops over a large area.  Many of the calls are still in use today, even with high tech equipment.  The program will begin at 2:10 pm in the Field House. Parents are invited.
