Pictured above are local military veterans who took part in a presentation at Harrison County Board of Developmental Disabilities Preschool on Thursday, where teachers read patriotic poems and students ages 3-5 sang songs, took photos and handed out candy as a thank you for the veterans’ service. It is the fifth year the preschool has held a program and, as one tyke put it, it was time to “sing for the Army dudes.”
