Veterans Day program at Antwerp School.

Veterans and current servicemen and women will be honored on stage at Adams Elementary School's annual salute to patriots at 9 a.m. Program emcee will be retired Cleburne High School Principal and Korean Conflict veteran E.J. Barnes. Information is available from the individual schools.

The high school invited about 150 veterans to the event.

Curt Halverson, Army veteran says, "I'm surprised, the student council has done a tremendous job to keep it going".

"My favorite part is afterwards when we have refreshments and we talk to all the veterans that gave up their time to be here and we get to know them and their stories", said Cooper.

Staley High School has held the event every year since their opening in 2008. "Also, we should be free to honor our flag".

"As educators, we are fortunate to have such a strong veteran presence in Howard County", said Martirano in a statement.

"I had to learn how to walk again", he said.

Ray Moore, of Aurora, a World War II veteran, spoke matter-of-factly about his service to his country. "Just seeing everyone that has come out and we're just here to thank them really".

Several students with parents who either served or are serving in the military say they love being able to do this for them.
