Middle School Students Celebrate Veterans' Day

East Texas middle school students honored those who fought for our freedom Monday morning, with a Veterans' Day tribute. "Taps" was performed by one student, as veterans saluted. The Judson Middle School band and choir also performed.

After the ceremony, students got the chance to sit down with the veterans and talk to them about their service in the military, something veterans say was very special to them.

"You know freedom, they need to understand is not free, somebody had to pay the price you know so yes, I think it's important," says Waymon Bryant, a Navy veteran.

This is the fourth year Judson Middle School has put on the Veterans' Day celebration.
