Area schools honor vets with programs
ONALASKA, Wis. -- Students at Luther High School honored our vets with a special presentation Friday.
They presented the dress uniforms from each of the five branches of the military and explained the uniforms, medals and insignias. It was part of a veterans day celebration at the school.
Current members of the Army, Navy and Marines attended the event. The presentation was put together by students from a government class who have put in a lot of hard work. "All of us have been working since school started, for months and we've all worked very hard on it and I think it's really coming together really well," says Senior Zachariah Dummer.
The project was easy for Zach who is joining the Marines when he graduates. At the event, the school also collected items that will be given to Operation Homefront who will put them in care packages for soldiers serving overseas.
