Navy veteran Bill Shiveley, of Cassville, was the guest speaker at Purdy High School’s annual Veterans Day assembly, held Friday afternoon in the gymnasium. Shiveley urged community members to not only thank veterans for their sacrifices, but to volunteer to help a local veteran or active serviceman and their families, encourage youth to explore the options of a military career, and urged veterans to share their stories with others.
