Teaching Respect for the Nation, Flag Honors, Military Service and Citizenship

Vets in the Classroom is an ongoing project to incorporate veterans into our local schools. The Aiken County Veterans Council is pleased to sponsor these visits and have vets explain how patriotism, honoring veterans, and respect for the American flag should be an integral part of American life. The students have the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of military service, history, and patriotism.
