South Carolina Students Celebrate Veterans Day

Midway Elementary School students in Lexington, South Carolina, celebrated Veterans Day with a special ceremony at their school. They invited all of their fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, sisters, and aunts-anyone who had served America in the armed forces.

Organized by the kids, the day featured a flag ceremony, patriotic speeches, and songs. "Many came in uniform," said Principal Margaret Mitchum, "and sat beside their kids. It was a very special celebration. We'd like to do this every year."
