CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Veterans Day looks a bit different this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
With so many events canceled, some Junior ROTC students in Chesapeake wanted to make sure vets in their community still felt celebrated.
So the JROTC students at Indian River High School made goodie bags for veterans and widowed military spouses. The students gave the bags to the Eagle Pointe community to pass out in a drive-thru parade.
Many of the cadets also wrote letters to the veterans, thanking them for their service and wishing them well during the pandemic.
