COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A group of middle school students presented tribute books to disabled veterans this morning based on stories from their experiences in the military.

Students from the creative writing class at Double Churches Middle School interviewed the veterans in October and wrote their stories that have now been published in a book titled "Hometown Heroes."

One student talked about the sacrifice female veterans have made to the country.

“Most people don't ask women veterans about their life. I felt that is very important that we as children go to do it,” said Double Churches Middle student Lemia Favors.

The students also signed the books they presented to the veterans.
