Grace Community School Honors East Texas Veterans

Grace Community School got an early start, saluting East Texas veterans and celebrating their sacrifices.

With songs and sounds of patriotism in the air, students and faculty paused to honor vets, past and present.   And for those who have seen war first hand, it was a special time to think about the true meaning of Veterans Day.

"I think it's an extremely important occasion each year to remind everybody of just what was a big part of getting us where we are right now," said Jamie Boring, a US Army, Air Force, and Marine Corp Veteran.

The service also included a speech by special guest, retired Lieutenant Colonel Brian Birdwell, a 9/11 survivor who worked in the pentagon.
