Students deliver cards to VA veterans

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The veterans at the VA Medical Center in Pineville got a surprise today.

Students from Cottonport's kindergarten class made the veterans some cards. The boys and girls rode the bus up to Pineville and passed those cards out. One Cottonport teacher says it's a way of teaching the students about those who fight for their freedoms.

"I think it was more than just getting out of class to come somewhere. I think that the children actually seeing the individuals who helped who provided freedoms that we have, worked for the safeties that we have, who are so brave in providing those services to us. I think it makes a big difference," said Sheila Saucier.

The students also passed out goody bags to the veterans at the VA.
