Columbia, SC (WLTX) - In honor of Veterans Day, third-grade students at South Kilbourne Elementary hosted a special white table ceremony.

Students sang patriotic songs, paid honor to the American flag, told stories about veterans and acted out a white table ceremony.

The white table ceremony has been an American military tradition for nearly 30 years. It originated during the Vietnam War era as a symbol for the remembrance of service members.

The ceremony was a tribute to all who have served in the US Military, especially those veterans who were missing in action or prisoners of war.
