Students in La Crescent honor veterans

Veterans in our community are being honored for keeping America safe.

Students at Crucifixion School in La Crescent sung patriotic songs this morning to veterans in attendance.

School staff hope the day makes the dedication of military members real to students.

“We don’t just celebrate the ones that are still serving, we celebrate the ones who have made a sacrifice and are dead, ” said Crucifixion School student Jack Vikeras.

Veterans were also served cookies and coffee as part of the event.
