American flags and students with hands over their hearts... It's a patriotic gesture of gratitude to welcome home two war heroes.
Tuesday, two brave men were escorted home by law enforcement and Patriot Guard riders.
Draped in red, white, and blue, Corporal William Aaron Newton arrived home in Kountze.
Jerry P. Craig was accompanied to Lake Charles.
Young eyes watching from the road side received a life-long lesson: to honor the brave.
Lumberton Middle School is where Corporal Newton's daughter works. The students and staff are like family. They are a close knit community standing strong.
The students of Lumberton ISD say it's the least they can do to give thanks.
