EAST LYME, Conn. (WTNH)–Students at East Lyme High School are honoring our veterans this Veterans Day.

“Every man in that unit knew what his job was, and his patriotism was there,” Higgins said. “That’s what I like about this wall. It is showing history of the Americans who are willing to lay their life down on the line for our country.”

In addition to the Wall of Honor, students presented a brunch and special ceremony for veterans along the Connecticut shoreline.
