WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - May is Military Appreciation Month, and students at Sunset High School in Washington County held a special event on Tuesday.
On Tuesday morning, students stood in front of their high school with American flags to welcome veterans to their Honor By Listening event.
As part of the event, students get to talk to local veterans about their experiences.
"It's amazing to hear some of the stories that they come back with, and their local members and their heroes of the community so it's a neat experience just to really hear what they have to say and what they've been through, because everyone has a different story," said Sunset High School senior Alex Jones
Members of several different military branches took part in the event.
