Frank Lloyd Wright students honor local veterans

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With Veterans Day on Sunday, students at a West Allis school got a special lesson from some local military veterans. 

Sixth through eighth graders at Frank Lloyd Wright Intermediate School welcomed veterans to their school for a special presentation and lunch. 

The students talked with veterans who brought in many items from their military service. It's an event that started two years ago. 

"This year our students came back to us and said we want it bigger, we want it better, what can we do? I let them run with it, this is completely student-led. They wanted to do the ceremony and honor our veterans. 

The students also held a donation drive to collect clothing and personal care items that will be donated to the Milwaukee Veterans Hospital.
