Durham Intermediate School is proud of the members of our nation and of our community who have served or are serving in America's Armed Forces. It is our Veterans who have protected our freedoms and liberties in times of peace and war. 


With Dragon Pride, we recognize and commemorate their contributions.
  
We would like to feature photos of loved ones in the military for a slide show that students will view on Veterans Day. They can be emailed to Mr. Bruns, Blake.Bruns@southlakecarroll.edu, no later than Friday November 5th. Any photos received after 11/5 are not guaranteed to be included in the presentation. Please make sure you include your military affiliation and any other special acknowledgements.
 
Thank you for your service to our country.
