Students in a Rogers Elementary School after school program took time to thank veterans as they delivered homemade Veterans Day cards at Iowa Veterans Home on Nov. 11.

Accompanied by Caleb Carver and Emily Goodall from Iowa State University Extension and Karina Hernandez from Mid-Iowa Community Action, the students visited dozens of veterans at IVH Wednesday.
Many veterans returned smiles and talked with the students about their service.

Most students were second graders at Rogers with one fourth grader also in attendance.
