Guests give students real-life lesson on Veterans Day


GARDNER (WVVA) - Students at PikeView High School put away their history books Friday to receive a living lesson on Veterans Day.

Recruiters from the Army National Guard were guest speakers at the school for the day.

They speakers told students about the true meaning of Veterans Day and why it is more than just a day off of school.

The speakers' goal was to give students a better understanding of what the nation's veterans have done to give them -- and all citizens -- the freedoms they enjoy in their daily lives.

The students were given the opportunity to ask questions.
