    One of the true jewels of Texoma is the annual Iwo Jima Reunion: the gathering of some of our nations most-valued heroes.
    Today, those veterans from the greatest generation received the hero's welcome they deserve from members of the youngest generation.
    As Melissa Foy and photojournalist Jake Van Donge show us, hundreds of Sheppard Elementary School students showed their thankfulness for the veterans' sacrifices through a special welcome, lunch, and a moving tribute, complete with several songs and poems.
