OAK HILL – Locals and middle school students in Oak Hill commemorated our veterans Friday.
Patriotic music filled the air at Collins Middle School's 6th Annual Veterans Day Program. The ceremony was open to the entire student body and area veterans.
James Thomas, a Vietnam Veteran and Oak Hill resident, said he appreciated the recognition. “People come up and shake your hand, welcome you home,” said Thomas. “It means a lot.”
Around 250 students participated in the program.
