OWASSO, Oklahoma -

Owasso Public Schools held its annual "Honoring All Who Served" Veteran's Day program at the high school Monday. Hodson Elementary students took to the stage with patriotic readings and musical performances.

United States veteran Ed Laugesen was in the audience for a repeat visit to the school system where his son-in-law is principal. He said as a veteran, he is honored by the recognition - and he thinks the kids involved benefit as well.

"I think it's a great opportunity for them because they learn about the military, to serve their country, and I think that in the future some of them may also choose to do that," he said.

Owasso resident and News On 6 anchor Craig Day emceed the event. Day said the Veteran's Day program has a special significance for him and his family. He remembers when his late father, a U.S. veteran, sat in the audience and his now-grown son was one of the elementary kids on stage.

"This program has been so meaningful for me and my family, and I hope it's very, very meaningful for you as well," he said.

The Owasso Fire Department helped set the stage for the patriot program, using a ladder truck to fly a giant Stars and Stripes in the school parking lot.
