As a U. S. Navy veteran, I salute Christy L. Jennings, the Atkinson Chorus, and those behind the scenes for the outstanding performance of “Celebrate America!!!” at The Newnan Centre, November 12, 2019.

From the Stand-at-Attention “Star-Spangled Banner,” the heart-tugging renditions of “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless America” to the rousing (unofficial) Atkinson school song “Roar” it is obvious that hard work and gusto pay off.

My wife said as we were leaving, “It’s encouraging to see patriotism, enthusiasm and, importantly, “hope” in the young people who will one day lead the military, businesses, or government in the greatest nation in the world.”

Thank you to those dedicated to teaching our children to appreciate and respect our veterans and to be loyal United States citizens.

Again, a salute to Ms. Jennings and the Atkinson Chorus; continue to Roar!
