It started as a normal Friday night football game in Bossier City, Louisiana. But there were also some honored guests there that night: veterans who served in World War II and the Korean War. The veterans were given front row seats to the game, and the marching band paid tribute to them at half time. The Parkway High School Air Force JROTC staff and cadets honored them at the game. They were also greeted by various members of law enforcement, but one picture has touched Americans across the country.
Parkway High School student Chase Hill was returning to the field from half-time when he spotted the veterans.
