SIOUX FALLS, S.D. ( — The youngest generation meets the Greatest Generation at Sonia Sotomayor Elementary School.

Two World War Two veterans were the special guests at a school assembly on Friday to honor all veterans.

Both Doug Starr and Laverne Larson, both in their 90s, served in the Pacific in the Navy. 

They were introduced by their grandsons.

“I’d like to introduce you to my grandpa. He is very great because he was in World War Two,” said Camden, the grandson of Larson. Camden also said his grandpa was special because he gives him treats. Simon did similar honors for his “Grandpa Doug.”

The two old vets didn’t say much. They just sat there and acknowledged the cheers of the kids. They also enjoyed the hugs of their grandsons.

Monday is Veteran’s Day.
