Students are out of school today in honor of Veterans Day. But some still took the time to say thank you to the men and women who have fought for our country.
Students at Woodfin Elementary School honored the vets in their community with a very special service last Friday.
World War II veteran Clarence Dotson and Robert Bensen, who fought in the Korean Conflict, were asked to share some of their experiences in the military.
Principal Chad Upton says he wants his students to know how lucky they are to be able to go to school, worship as they choose, and have the freedom to strive to be who they want to be.
The school also recognized those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
And Mr. Dotson and Mr. Bensen showed everyone how to correctly fold an American flag as Kathy Cook, with the VFW Ladies Auxiliary explained what each fold represents.
The school also gave certificates to veterans, past and present, who are part of the Woodfin community.
