This Veterans Day weekend, a group of North Texas high school students will take part in a Texas-size salute to those who have served our country.
The Mansfield High School JROTC will host a “Salute-A-Thon” Saturday afternoon, where for five straight hours they’ll stand around the flagpole in front of the school and salute the American flag.
They’ll head to the school immediately after they finish participating in the City of Mansfield’s Veterans Day Parade, which starts at 10 a.m.
“Every branch out there, they served, they fought — they were there,” said Makayla Salas, a student cadet in the MHS JROTC program. “They helped us get this nation.”
