The school held a special ceremony to commemorate the occasion.

Richmond County school salutes veterans

AUGUSTA (WFXG) -Lake Forest Hills Elementary School held its Veterans Day parade Friday morning to honor those who’ve served our nation.

The kids won’t have classes on Monday, so this was a special way for the community to remember the selfless service of their local veterans.

On Friday, students got to march in the parade. Some students brought a veteran to march with them. Others who couldn’t have the veterans attend, joined the march as well, by holding up pictures of their relatives who served. The ceremony allowed the children to learn what their heroes fought for and are continuing to fight for every day. It also included a moment of silence and the playing of “Taps.”
