Perimeter School will host its 18th annual Veterans Day program on Thursday, Nov. 15, honoring all Veterans of the Armed Forces.
This year the school at Perimeter Church is hosting Major Jeff Strueker, survivor of the raid on Mogadishu and of Black Hawk Down fame, as guest speaker.

His Army experience includes service in Panama, Kuwait and Somalia, and multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraqi.
