A special Veterans Day celebration took place Friday in Redding.

For the seventh straight year, Mistletoe Elementary School held its Mistletoe Salutes America event. Students from kindergarten through 8th grade honored veterans and were given a chance to better understand the service and sacrifice they have made.

With Veterans Day just around the corner, teachers and students know how important it is to honor our men and women in uniform.

The day started with an assembly that ushered in Veterans from all services, plus educational videos and kids singing patriotic songs.

The Northern California Veterans Historical Association provided military artifacts and vehicles, including a restored Huey Helicopter and Jeep.
