Riverhead Central School District third-graders at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School learned firsthand about the sacrifices and service of American heroes during a Veterans Day event on Nov. 9.

Local veterans Virginia Figueroa, Barry Gilmore, Brian Mooney and Raul Valentin visited the school to speak to the third-graders about their experiences in the military and to answer questions.

After learning about the veterans, the students treated them to lunch and thanked them for their service.
