Grant Middle School students were the latest to have a special visit from veterans.

Spectrum has partnered with The History Channel for an initiative called Take a Vet to School Day. Just last week, Liverpool students had the special learning experience.

Congressman John Katko was present at Monday's lesson. He says he hopes the event sends a positive message to students and veterans.

"Over 1.2 million people, I think, in this history of our country have given our lives just so we could have freedom," Katko said. "And countless millions more have been injured based on their service, so the least we can do is honor them and instill in the rest of Americans the sense of service and the sense of duty."

This program is part of a nationwide effort.
