WAYNESBORO, Va -- Cadets at Fishburne Military School also honored our veterans with an annual ceremony which honored not only those who served, but put a special emphasis on those soldiers who have fallen in the line of duty. They did this with symbolic demonstrations of empty chairs and bayonets stuck in the ground.

Lt. Col. Robert Hunt, a senior Army instructor, said it was especially important for the cadets to remember our veterans.

“What's special about our ceremony, not only do we talk about the veterans of all wars, but we talk about Fishburne cadets that have served here before, that were part of the school and served in the military and actually had passed in a conflict,” said Hunt.

More than 60 former cadets from Fishburne were honored with a three volley rifle salute. On Sunday, the cadets will pay tribute to the school's founder, James Abbott Fishburne.
