Greenwood Elementary School students stood in respectful silence on Veterans Day as River Falls American Legion Post 121 Commander Missy Hildebrandt talked about military service, the history of Veterans Day and how students can honor veterans (by voting in every election, by thanking them, by respecting law and order, by cherishing the freedoms veterans have fought to preserve, to name a few).
