Buckhannon Upshur Middle School Honors Local Veterans

Students at Buckhannon Upshur Middle School recognized local veterans Friday.

It held a recognition program to thank members of the military who have served and are currently serving.

American Legion Post 7 is working with schools to show how they can take pride in patriotism.

On hand were two veterans who served in World War II, and students invited other veterans from the various branches of service.

"It makes me very happy, and it makes me know what we did by getting together was the right thing so we can continue teaching patriotism within in our schools, and that was our goal," said Mary Albaugh, of American Legion Post 7.

Albaugh said the school wants to make this recognition ceremony program a yearly event.
