A group of local students had the opportunity to learn about local heroes who have lost their lives serving for our country.
Students of all ages from the Macon R-3 schools spent Friday touring the 'Fallen Heroes' exhibit at the Macon Public Library.
The exhibit allowed the students, especially the younger ones, to get a better idea of why some of the soldiers who serve never make it home.
The kids had the opportunity to look at the different photos in the exhibit and watch a video of a memorial service.
Members of the American Legion in Macon, who are hosting the exhibit, were also on hand to answer questions the students asked about the effects of war and what it would be like to serve our country.
"We just want them to understand that when you hear on the news about the war on terrorists, the terrorism, Afghanistan, and Iraq, there is a human cost to those, and we want to support our military members over there," said Bill Noyes, of the American Legion in Macon.
The 'Fallen Heroes' Exhibit is open to the public and admission is free. The exhibit will be at the Macon Public Library until January 30th.
