Middle schools in West Aurora School District 129 took time Wednesday to honor our nation's veterans.
Jewel Middle School's seventh annual Veterans Day assembly, organized by the eighth-graders, honored veterans from the Armed Forces at the North Aurora school.
Herget Middle School in Aurora featured a day of activities and a school assembly. The school highlighted the Wounded Warrior Project and included a letter-writing campaign to "Thank a Warrior." T-shirts were sold to promote awareness and show support for the Project, which honors and empowers injured servicemen and women.
