SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - War heroes were honored at Worth County Primary. Veterans, young and old, packed the cafeteria as the second grade chorus performed for them.

 Flags waved in tiny hands as the children on the stage and off saluted veterans for all of their sacrifices. These 60 students practiced their songs for weeks, and veterans say they appreciated all their work.

"I'm proud of them. It shows us a lot of dedication and respect, and that they look up to us. My family was in the Army. So I looked up to them. And if it wasn't for them we wouldn't be here today," said father and solder, Jason Nelms.

This Veteran's Day celebration is an annual event at the elementary school for all of the veterans who are related to students who attend Worth County Primary.
