Students at Central Junior High School in Moore now know more about the sacrifices of America's veterans.

About 650 of the school's students heard firsthand accounts today from veterans who fought in World War Two, Korea, Vietnam,
the Persian Gulf and Bosnia.

Three teachers in the school's history department and members of Moore's American Legion Post 184 organized the project to present six, one-hour Veterans Day history of being outnumbered by Chinese troops six-to-one in a battle fought in temperatures 40 degrees below zero.

Army veteran Boyd Fallwell told the students his friend from junior high school is still missing in action from the Korean war.
