Fred Douglass students honor veterans

Jacksonville Police Sgt. Randy Wilson, a Navy veteran, fielded questions Friday during a program honoring local veterans at Fred Douglass Elementary. The special musical performance by third and fourth graders included talks by Wilson and fellow JPD Officer TJ Allen, an Army veteran. Students sang traditional songs such as “She’s a Grand Old Flag” and newer ones, too, by Lee Greenwood and Tim McGraw. Several different events commemorating the Nov. 11 Veterans Day holiday to honor military service men and women are planned in the area during the next few days.
