DENISON -- About 1,000 students in Denison honored local veterans at a school assembly this morning.

The school's band and choir played patriotic tunes to a packed gym.

Dozens of Texoma veterans were recognized for their service, many of whom have ties to the school's students and staff.

Jason Morgan was the special guest speaker.

He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force after being paralyzed while on a special forces mission in South America.

"In a split second, my whole life changed," Morgan said. "For some of you, and most of the veterans know here that the military, it's not just a job, it's a lifestyle."

It's the fourth year B. McDaniel Middle School has hosted the Veterans Day celebration.
