Rum River Elementary School is honoring military servicemen and women during a Veterans Day celebration.

During the ceremony, veterans and current members of the military in the Anoka-Hennepin district will receive a book outlining all of the things they have done for the country – in ABC form. The book is called “All Because a Soldier Said, ‘Yes!’ An ABC Book for Veterans Day.”

An honor guard of students will then place wreaths on stands representing the branches of the military, and students will sing “It’s a Grand Old Flag.”

The program will also feature video-taped messages from family members serving domestically and overseas.
