Kazen Elementary honors local veterans

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A local elementary school decided to get an early start on the Veteran's Day celebrations by honor some local heroes.

This Sunday is a very special day where we honor our local troops and those who have fought for our freedom.

Kazen Elementary held a special ceremony honoring service members ahead of Veteran's Day.

A total of 18 veterans, dads, mothers, grandfathers and other relatives were recognized during the special ceremony.

This was the 15th year that Kazen held the event showing students how important it is to honor our local veterans.

Veteran's Day is celebrated across the nation every 11th of November.

From all of us here at your good neighbor station we would like to wish everyone a very happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service.
