ALEXANDRA, La. (KALB) - With Veterans Day coming up on Sunday, the students at Cherokee Elementary School presented an awesome tribute to honor the men and women who have served our country.
All veterans within the community were invited to join the program.
The students dressed in red, white and blue, as they sang songs, and thanked the veterans for their service.
The Alexandria High School ROTC also joined the Cherokee students with a special presentation.
The students not only showed their appreciation, but they also displayed their knowledge of Veterans Day, which was especially important for one of the military mothers.
“It's really important that my kids understand what Veterans Day is all about,” she said. “And why it’s important to me and why it’s so important to them."
A reception was also held afterward.
