Luncheon at Nettleton High School honors vets

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- A Region 8 school gives it's students a detailed look at the sacrifice made by our veterans.

Nettleton High School held a luncheon and program to honor local veterans. Students got to speak one on one to honored guests about their personal experiences when they served the country.

Barry Carlton, a U.S. History Teacher at Nettleton High School says, "there's a big difference between opening up a history book or getting on line and reading about the history of veterans day, there's a big difference between that and sitting down at a table across from a veteran that may have been on the beach of Normandy or may have served in Vietnam War."

Over one hundred students got to visit with veterans and say "thank you".
