Kelly Elementary students unveil their traveling tribute wall for fallen vets — with a big ceremony

Fifth graders spent the entire school year planning a traveling tribute to local soldiers killed in the line of duty. The ceremony unveiling their memorial wall featured a bagpiper, sports cars and motorcycles, a former Miss America – and even a skydiver who landed right in front of the school.
