"Take a Veteran to School Day" at Local Middle School

SAN ANGELO, TX - Students in San Angelo have been learning about the significance of "Veterans' Day". At Glenn Middle School it was "Take a Veteran to School Day" Friday.  

Goodfellow Air Force Base personnel, elected representatives, and others talked to students on campus.

They also watched a marshal arts demonstration by members of the U.S. Marine Corp stationed in San Angelo.

A number of students also invited parents and other relatives who were veteran guests to lunch.

"We have a lot of students who are the children of active duty or veterans so we just wanted to give them the opportunity to give back to the community to say thank you for the people who made it possible for us to be here and in our environment today," said Social Studies Teacher Bridgette Thompson. 

The program included only sixth graders, about 500 of them, after the program was moved inside because of the weather.
