Schools across South-Central Kentucky also took time out to remember the events of 9/11.
The Warren East High School Air Force Jr. ROTC kicked off the day with a small ceremony to commemorate the anniversary of September 11.
A reveille and flag raising ceremony were held at the school's flagpole.
"What we did is small but it was good, we should be proud of it," WEHS Cadet Capt. Gregory Burkeen said.
Several other schools held special ceremonies, including a Freedom Walk at Lost River Elementary.
Muhlenberg South Elementary actually had a Black Hawk helicopter land in the school parking lot as part of a kick-off for the Armed Forces Foundation and a three-month project to send letters and care packages to soldiers.
