Children Celebrate Pride, Patriotism On Flag Day


AND A LONG ISLAND SCHOOL IS MAKING SURE YOUNGER GENERATIONS ALWAYS REMEMBER THE MEANING. CBS 2 REPORTS. Reporter: A CHANCE FOR MORE THAN 470 YOUNG STUDENTS TO START THE DAY HONORING OLD GLORY. CELEBRATING OUR STARS AND STRIPES IN SONG AND IN SIGN LANGUAGE AND SPEECHES. SEVERAL STUDENTS INCLUDING THIS FIFTH GRADER SHARING THEIR AWARD WINNING ESSAYS AND WHAT FLAG DAY MEANS TO THEM. CELEBRATING HOW GREAT OUR COUNTRY, AMERICA IS. SUPPORTING ALL THE VETERANS AND WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AND HOW THEY HELPED AMERICA BE AS GREAT AS IT IS TODAY. Reporter: THE STUDENTS ALSO THANK THE VETERANS AT THE EVENT TODAY. IT INCLUDES MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION POST 411. I SERVED IN VIETNAM FROM DECEMBER 1966 TO DECEMBER 1967. Reporter: U.S. ARMY VET JOHNSON IS GRATEFUL TO SEE YOUNG GENERATIONS LEARNING ABOUT FLAG DAY. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE TOO MANY TIMES THE KIDS AREN’T TAUGHT. I DON’T THINK THE FLAG GETS ENOUGH RESPECT TODAY. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT IT ENOUGH I THINK TO BE HONEST AND HAVING THIS ONE DAY TO BRING EVERYONE TOGETHER AND TALK AND PAY HOMAGE TO THE FLAG IS JUST A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYBODY. Reporter: THERE ARE MORE THAN 100 FLAGS ON DISPLAY IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL. EACH ONE FOR A VETERAN CONNECTED TO THE COMMUNITY. MY HOPE IS THAT THE KIDS UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO IN EVERYDAY LIFE, SUCH AS THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, HAS A GREATER
