Heritage Elementary School students showed their patriotism with their Veterans Day program.

Kindergartners through fourth graders participated in the program that included each grade singing a song and several students reading their essays about Veterans Day. The guest speaker was retired Lieutenant Colonel Don Klingler of the United States Marines. Klingler taught the students about the history of Veterans Day and shared stories of his years in service.

"It's an honor for me to come out and see if I can't promote veterans a little bit," Klingler said. "Get young folks acquainted with what veterans and what they're all about and what they've done."
