Local elementary and restaurant honor and give thanks to veterans

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Friday we honor and give thanks to military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces.

Beartooth Elementary is teaming up with Famous Dave's, who is offering a free meal to all veterans. Together, students and restaurant staff will welcome veterans between 11 a.m. and noon, and to go along with a free meal, Beartooth students have prepared some pretty crafty and heart-felt cards as a way to say thank you to our local veterans.

When we asked the students why it is so important to give thanks to our veterans, and why making these cards is so important to them, here's what they had to say:  

“They protect us and our world to make it a better place.” -Olivia Close, 2nd grader.

“I get to congratulate the people that work so hard to protect the United States.” -Hunter Wilson, 5th grader.

“I get to talk to a veteran and thank him for protecting us, our country, and our community.” -Jennica Voigt, 5th grader.

Olivia Close also said making the cards was extra special for her as she was able to show her step-brother her thanks and appreciation too.
