Intelligence expert to speak at lakeway Veterans Day Ceremony

Fred Burton, an expert on global intelligence and New York Times best-selling author, will highlight the role veterans have played in defending our country’s freedom during the Lakeway’s Veterans Day ceremony scheduled for 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 11 at the Lake Travis High School Performing Arts Center.

The Lake Travis Standing Military Committee will host the event in cooperation with the City of Lakeway, Lakeway Police Department, Lake Travis ISD, members of the Lohmann’s Ford Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Lakeway Heritage Commission.

“We owe a debt we can never fully repay to the men and women who have sacrificed to preserve our freedom, but Veterans Day is one way we honor their service,” Lakeway Mayor Joe Bain said.

At the ceremony, the City of Lakeway will pay tribute to 17 veterans whose names have been engraved on the Spirit of Freedom Monument. The Lake Travis High School Band and Choir will perform patriotic music and military anthems.

“Once again, we are pleased to host this event for the Lake Travis community,” LTISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brad Lancaster said. “LTISD applauds the Lake Travis Standing Military Committee for their efforts to involve our students and school community in this unique event.  We look forward to honoring our veterans on their special day, and furthermore, to providing our students with incredible learning opportunities.”
