East Texas School Recognizes Veterans

In Tyler Friday morning, one East Texas school said thank you to our local veterans and remembered those who died.  During the playing of the Taps, John Tyler High School students read off the names of former JT students who died while serving.  This is John Tyler's 25th Veterans Day Recognition Ceremony, which features the school's Junior ROTC.  Veterans say they hope the program will teach students to appreciate those who have served.

"We have to make sure we don't forget, and that America doesn't forget and appreciate the armed forces, all those who serve, so we maintain our freedom," said JT Band Director and Veteran Otto Harry. 

The ROTC also recognized John Tyler faculty members who have served.
