An East Texas School Honors Veterans

An East Texas school honored local veterans today. The Grace Community School choir and band performed for more than 100 veterans. Korean war veteran and entrepreneur Dr. Bobby Griffin spoke to the students. The school says this program is just as moving for the students as the veterans.

"It's really great for our students," said School Administrator Jay Ferguson. "It's so important that our students realize and are mindfull of the sacrifices that all of these men and women have made to help make us free. The best way of making them aware of that is bringing these folks here." The school says the annual program is also for their former students who are now in the armed forces.
