Students at the L.B. Morris Elementary School in Jim Thorpe completed a large class project honoring America's veterans which was inspired by a quote from a Bruce Springstein song "wherever this flag's flown, we take care of our own".

The entire 5th grade homeroom class of Mrs. Susan Barford participated in the project which focus on the conflicts fought by veterans who are alive today.

Mrs. Barford said that "every year the class does a project for Veterans Day to thank the veterans for what they have done for our country."

"This year we focused on where the veterans have to go during times of war and peace."

The class was divided into separate groups with one group focused on America, another on World War II, another group on Korea, one on Vietnam, and another group on Afghanistan and Iraq.

Through this project, the students learned where the countries were, where the servicemen have to travel, and also how much the veterans sacrificed for their country.
