Jefferson Elementary honors Korean War veterans

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Jefferson Elementary in Wichita Falls took part in a send off for some special guys this morning.

They honored nine Korean War veterans as they departed for Washington D.C. for an honor flight. The Assistant Principal Erica Adkins told our crew about the great honor that it is to acknowledge these veterans for the sacrifices that they have made for our country.

"Well today we were able to celebrate the veterans and be a part of the ceremony in the honor flight send off, and its really such an honor to be a part of that. Because we really stress the importance of patriotism and giving back to our community and honoring the people that have fought so hard to keep our country and our rights."

This was the largest honor flight from our area ever.
