Southeast Bulloch feeds veterans

BROOKLET, GA (WTOC) -

More than a dozen Bulloch County veterans enjoyed a free lunch at Southeast Bulloch Middle School.

Many of those veterans came as relatives of students and sat with them. Besides the gesture, the lunch was a chance for students to learn about those who've served their country.

"It's a chance for students who don't have a relative in military service to connect a face and a name to being a veteran," explained Michelle Highsmith, one of the teachers who organized the lunch.

In addition to the lunch, students spent the past few weeks collecting supplies for care packages to active duty military members who are currently deployed.
