Students Paint Mural in Honor of Veterans
KZTV Channel 10 Corpus Christi ^ | 03-16-2013 | KZTV10.com

Posted on 03/17/2013 7:29:27 PM PDT by TheMom

Local students from the Aransas Pass High School Art Club paint a mural in honor of Veterans.

The idea for the mural came from my mother (the lady in the video). She did a lot of leg work to get this project going to make something good out of "that ugly wall".

Just don’t put any “Army men” on it with “evil guns” or you’ll be suspended!

The school can be judged by the way it respects the Country’s veterans.

I only met with the art club teacher and those awesome girls for just a few minutes, but it was long enough for me to have the ultimate respect for all of them.

That is just wonderful. Now I know from whom you learned your Super-Mom mojo. You are a heroine just like your mother.

Abusing the list? Nah. It’s a great use of the list.

The dedication ceremony was both beautiful and moving. It was heartwarming to see so many people participating and attending this event.

My mother said she appreciates everyone's "thank you's" and she said "Thank You" to all of our vet's.

Here are a few pictures:
