Lindale ISD honors local veterans

By Jamey Boyum - email

LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - Lindale Independent School District honored their local veterans with several ceremonies today. We visited two schools to show us just how much they were appreciated.

Lindale's early Childhood Center is already teaching children what freedom means by letting them make cards for some of the vets they're meeting.

Connie Hicks, a Texas National Guard and Navy Veteran proudly said," My granddaughter made this for me."

"This one's from my grandson. I guess he thinks that looks like me," said Master Sergeant James Frizzell, showing a card with a much older man pictured on it.

"It's the thought that counts,' he continued.

CD Skinner, an ex-infantryman, read a poem given to him.

"This is a hand print as anyone can see. It's made with my sweet hand which is a part of me. So you always know that in my heart, you are respected for your part. Up on my face a prideful smile, because you went the extra mile. That makes it worthwhile," He said.

At a Velma Penny Elementary lunch the fourth graders were the wait staff.

Brina Linda said, "It's just a great honor to serve the people that served us and to thank them for all they have done for us."

It was the final chapter of the Brookshire's-sponsored trip to D.C. to visit the World War Two Memorial. Some of the students wrote letters received by the vets while on the trip, like Hank Pendagrass.

"The kids are great and I've got one that I want to meet, especially. I got a letter from one of them, Isaac Anderson. I've got to meet him before I leave today," he stated.

Hank and some of the other vets got to meet some of the kids.

Unfortunately not Isaac Anderson. But, you can bet the way this guy moves down a hallway, Hank will track him down eventually.
