ALACHUA – Alachua Elementary School students celebrated Veterans Day with a lively ceremony Thursday.
The ceremony, “A Celebration of our Heroes,” was open to the public, and over 20 veterans attended.
Faculty members, dressed as Uncle Sam and Betsy Ross, shared facts about U.S. history as birds chirped in the chilly morning air.
Students sat on the pavement, waved miniature American flags and sang patriotic songs like “Grand Old Flag,” “God Bless America” and “God Bless the USA.” Veterans were recognized individually for their service.
School principal Evelyn Copeland said the ceremony is held every year out of respect for the country’s servicemen.
“It’s so that we can honor our veterans,” she said. “This is an important way to show the sacrifice veterans have made.”
She said students often invite fathers and grandfathers who have served in the military to the ceremony. Copeland said most veterans think the ceremony is nice and are thankful the school organizes it each year.
Marine Cpl. Charles Dampier said he enjoyed the ceremony. Dampier served 2006 through 2010, and he was deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan.
“I came for my cousin,” he said. “I liked seeing the kids with their flags.”
Dampier said he thinks it’s important to acknowledge Veterans Day.
“A lot of people don’t understand the hardships military [personnel] go through,” he said. “It’s important to recognize it.”

Men with blood cell diseases such as sickle cell anemia, leukemia, and multiple myeloma have higher than normal risks of developing priapism. Untreated priapism can cause injury to the penile tissue and lead to permanent loss of potency. If there is prolonged erection (longer than four hours), immediate medical assistance should be sought. cialis online best canadian cialis ed viagra online buy viagra online How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Vardenafil (Levitra) can cause hypotension (abnormally low blood pressure, which can lead to fainting and even shock) when given to patients who are taking nitrates. People taking nitrates daily should not take vardenafil. Most commonly used nitrates are medications to relieve angina (chest pain due to insufficient blood supply to heart muscle because of narrowing of the coronary arteries). These include nitroglycerine tablets, patches, ointments, sprays, pastes, and isosorbide dinitrate and isosorbide mononitrate. Other nitrates such as amyl nitrate and butyl nitrate are found in some recreational drugs called "poppers." buying viagra online in australia buy viagra online Many common medications for treating hypertension, depression, and high blood lipids can contribute to erectile dysfunction (see above). Treatment of hypertension is an example. There are many different types (classes) of anti-hypertensive medications (medications that lower blood pressure); these include beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics (medications that increase urine volume), angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors), and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). Anti-hypertensives may be used alone or in combination to control blood pressure. Different classes of anti-hypertensives have different effects on erectile function. Inderal (a beta blocker) and hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic) are known to cause erectile dysfunction, while calcium channel blockers and ACE inhibitors do not seem to affect erectile function. On the other hand, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) such as losartan (Cozaar) and valsartan (Diovan) may actually increase sexual appetite, improve sexual performance, and decrease erectile dysfunction. Therefore, choosing an optimal anti-hypertensive combination is an important part of treating erectile dysfunction. buy cialis cialis without prescription Viagra com a href order viagra online a buy viagra no prescritpion Now that researchers have found this biochemical loop, new treatments targeting phosphorylation can help "intervene earlier in the arousal process than current medicines approved to treat erectile dysfunction," the release stated.
