November 11th is the day we set aside to honor our veterans, but today they received a big thanks from four schools in the WFISD.
Dozens of veterans dressed in their military uniforms were the honored guests at the event.
A fitting tribute for those who fought for our freedom.
A breeze just right for a day of remembrance.
"Good morning, how's everyone doing today."
For a ceremony honoring those who have risked their lives for our freedom.
Dozens of veterans sitting front and center were honored guests at the WFISD Veterans Day Ceremony at Memorial Stadium.
One question still lingering, "what can you say."
What do you say to thank those who have served, so we can be free.
Some of those veterans served in wars which happened before all of the students were even born.
Robert Gragg is a veteran who served during World War II and though he didn't share much about his experiences from the war he did offer students some advice.
"It's very important, I think, for young people to go to school and get educated," he said.
"It feels pretty good but you hate to see your buddies go too," said Robert Norris, another WWII Veteran.
Some of those men remembered as people gather to read their names at the stadium memorial. With a wreath laid in front of the plaque bearing the names of those fallen soldiers.
A reminder that freedom often comes at a great cost.
In 1997, the stadium was dedicated to those who had lost their lives while serving our nation.
