ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Los Ranchos Elementary School celebrated Veterans Day Monday and marked the beginning of several events to celebrate the school's 100th anniversary that will occur in 2014.
Monday's events were started by hoisting a flag that has flown over the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
Students then recited the pledge of allegiance and veterans spoke to students about their service to our country.
