Students at a Southwest Side elementary school kicked off the Memorial Day weekend by hosting and honoring a group of veterans Friday.

The students at Marquette Elementary School listened to a panel of veterans share stories about their service to the country. The veterans were each presented with a flag pin and medallion.

The students are writing letters about what they heard and sending them, along with thank you cards, to troops currently serving our nation overseas.
