Ed Veator of Gloucester, a former national district and state commander of AMVETS, speaks about the upcoming Veterans Day holiday during an all-school assembly Monday at East Gloucester Elementary School. Veator and his son Mike Veator, coordinator of the Gloucester chapter of the Sons of AMVETS, visited the school to tell them the meaning of Veterans Day, how it differs from Memorial Day, and what local observances will be held on Wednesday. The fourth graders responded by reciting a poem in their honor.
