Synopsis

Take a Vet to School – There is no better way to learn about Veteran’s Day than to spend time with a real veteran. The students at Toms River's Hooper Avenue Elementary School celebrate Veterans' Day by inviting veterans into their school to share their stories of service. The program begins with students and veterans participating in a flag-raising ceremony. Then the veterans - who have served in World War II, Desert Storm, and Operation Iraqi Freedom, among other conflicts - visit classrooms to tell their stories and answer students' questions. Winner of the 2014-15 New York Emmy.
