Veteran: 'Bring a Vet to School Day' was 'like receiving a medal'(PHOTOS)

Club members Sophia Sullivan, 7, and Carly Hayes, 8, said they appreciated the chance to honor veterans.

"I am happy to serve all of these parents; they are like my parents," Carly said.

Veteran Jesse Ladner — invited by his sons Owen and James McPherson — said seeing children celebrate Veterans Day is rewarding.

"It makes you feel good," he said. "I personally feel that it is a greater honor ... the children showing respect, than anything ... like receiving a medal."
