Students at Seymour High School paid tribute to our nation's veterans though the choral department's 19th annual Veterans Day Program.

This year's presentation included a medley of '40s music, some drama, and a slide show to honor and remember those who have served.

School leaders say the students took full advantage of the chance to honor men and women who sacrificed so much.

"We wouldn't have this opportunity. We wouldn't have the opportunity to be here at this school and to have our freedom if it weren't for our veterans. And our students understand that," said Jean Burkhart, the Seymour High School choral director.

"Probably putting on a presentation like this, they have to go through and study some of the past conflict and situations that veterans have been in. And I think by doing that they understand more about our sacrifice," said George Vitzthum, retired Chief Master Sgt. U.S. Air Force.

The school will hold three more performances.

The next one starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, followed by a 1:30 performance Friday afternoon, and a 7 p.m. presentation on Saturday
