HERMON - Hermon High School's Junior ROTC program is paying respect to the nation's fallen veterans by placing flags on their graves.

The program is one of the largest of its kind in northern New England.


Teachers say this is great opportunity for students to learn that people served for a greater cause and made the ultimate sacrifice.


Students are honored to plant the flags and salute fallen veterans.


"I love everything about it. I love being able to connect with all of our fallen heros and really bringing our community together," said Owen Shaw, junior cadet commant sergeant major.
