ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Fifth-grade students at Barbour Two Way Language Immersion present songs and poems to veterans, thanking them for their service. They were also able to participate in a question and answer session, hearing stories about those who fought for our freedom.

"It's very important for us as a school to make sure that the veterans know how thankful we are and how grateful we are for everything they've done to give us the freedoms we have and for the education we're able to provide to the students," says assistant principal Laura Blackwell.
