NEWPORT BEACH — Students at Our Lady Queen of Angels School, along with their teachers and parents, waved American flags and showed off their red-white and blue uniforms as they welcomed a group of military veterans to their campus on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

School Principal Eileen Ryan welcomed the veterans, nearly all of whom were fathers, grandfathers or friends of the students. A handful of the veterans, who participated in wars and conflicts going back as far as World War II, were asked to speak to the students about their days in uniform.

The event ended with a moment of silence.
