KENNEWICK, Wash. - A day before Veterans Day , many schools Tuesday held assemblies to honor local veterans.

Students at Kamiakin High School in Kennewick personally thanked active soldiers and veterans. Seniors who have enlisted into the military were also honored.

Washington State Representative Brad Klippert emceed the event and delivered a clear message.

"The question you have to ask yourself is: What price am I willing to pay for the freedom for my country while I am a citizen of this United States and to prepare it for the children I will have someday in my family?" asked Rep. Klippert.

Each veteran and soldier received a letter from the Kamiakin Student body afterwards thanking them for their service.
