The Altoona Area High School Marching Band were among those honoring our local veterans Monday with patriotic songs and salutes.
Kids lined the street -- and beyond the candy - which is always a bonus treat - the kids we talked with realized the importance of this day -- and many brought along their own hero - in the form of the Dad, Mom or Grandfather to enjoy the day together.
While these kids had the day off from school, they also recognized the importance of honoring these heroes -- and that makes them Fit Kids First!
