Humble High School holds Veterans Day service

HUMBLE, TX (KTRK) -- Feelings of pride, gratitude, and service overwhelmed those in attendance at Veterans Day service inside Humble High School.

The ceremony, organized by students, paid tribute to all who've served the United States. Vietnam veterans, like Noman Macey and John Heimburger, told Eyewitness News the ceremony brought back a wave of memories. They stressed the importance of teaching youth about the sacrifices paid for their freedom.

"This is where it starts, the foundation, the root," said Macey. "This is what it's all about, this is the future of America."

Students organized the event and treated veterans to breakfast following the ceremony.

"These people have given their lives to help save us, some in the most literal sense," said student Kevin Scherer. "It would be shameful for me not to honor what they've given to me."
