Students at West Boulevard Elementary in Boardman honor veterans

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Some of our Valley's Bravest were special guests at Boardman's West Boulevard Elementary School.

Veterans were treated to lunch by the students who sang songs and made cards to show their appreciation.

One mom, who has served in the military for the last 10 years, is impressed with the children's excitement.

"I think it definitely teaches them to not only respect their elders and the people that were in the Army before, but it gives them something to look forward to when they grow up. Because the little boys will come, they are fascinated by my uniform. They talk about I want to be in the Navy when I grow up," said First Lieutenant Tiffany Glass.

The kindergarten class performed God Bless America for the veterans as the other students chanted USA.
