Soldiers eat lunch with their children

November 10, 2006

Worth County - - Some war veterans and active duty soldiers are celebrating Veteran's Day a little early. 

Students at Worth County Primary School held a program Friday inviting their families to come eat lunch with them.

The school has done this since the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.

Military parents say it's a good way to bond with their children.

"It's great. It's nothing like spending time with your daughter. When the school teaches them, they bring it home and we get to enforce what they learn during the day and everything. It's great," says Sgt. Willie Harris.

Students from Worth County Middle School's chorus came over to perform for the crowd.

White's Seafood & Barbecue catered the lunch.
