This Morning: 5th grade war hero project being turned into a book


Students at North Elementary School in Ithaca are feeling a bit patriotic this morning and showing off a project that captured stories of military veterans.

Students interviewed seven local military veterans who served in wars such as WWII, Korea, Iraq, and Vietnam.

The Gratiot County Community Foundation awarded the 5th graders a grant to turn those war stories into a book.

Later today, students will present the veterans with a copy of the book.

The book will also be found in public libraries and is being sold online.
