ROME – Students and veterans bridged the generation gap with gratitude and honor at Stokes Elementary School in Rome today.
Roughly 60 local veterans visited the school to celebrate with their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews at the school’s Veterans Day ceremony.
“We want to teach our children at a very young age what Veterans Day is and what an honor it is to recognize all of the veterans who have served our country,” said Karen Miller, principal of Stokes Elementary School.
