Decatur - Local schools honored vets today, including Thomas Jefferson Middle School.
TJ students gave a program on what it means to serve our county and invited veterans and guest speakers to help them learn about military service.
Shelby Bush a student at T.J. said "we set a vet day ceremony up to thank all the veterans that came in and the ones working at the school."
Maddy Robersen also shared that a lot of work goes into this day, "we put a lot of effort into a day to acknowledge the veterans and make them feel special."
Alyssa Baltimore added "without veterans and without people who fight for our country, where would we be?"
Veterans Day on Monday is a federal holiday, so all state and federal offices will be closed.
