Messages For Soldiers

100 balloons with 100 wishes for our brave men and women fighting overseas...
That's how students at Harlan Elementary Celebrated today their 100th day of school. They wrote 100 messages each a wish for our local soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. They attached each message to a balloon and then launched the balloons into the air.

"I appreciate the fact they're over there for us, giving us freedom." says Harlan Elementary Student Christian Magnan.

"knowing the community stands behind the soldiers the way they do... it was heartfelt... very touching." says Tracie Luttrell whose husband is in Iraq.

The balloon launch was just one of many ways the students celebrated their 100th day of school today.
