Students Honor Third ID Fallen

Students and teachers at Langston Chapel Elementary School in Statesboro adopted a Fort Stewart unit before the soldiers deployed to Iraq. At this morning's Patriot Day ceremony, they dedicated a tree to the eight members of the unit who were killed in action.

"You need to teach children at a young age to support your military, regardless of whether you support a war, a president, or any military action, you've got to support the soldiers fighting for you," said teacher Cindy Bozeman.

Teachers and students began this observance on the first anniversary of the World Trade Center attack.
