Daniel talks with Waldo Fisher, a civics teacher at Darby Junior High School in Fort Smith Arkansas. Every Memorial Day weekend, Fisher rounds up his students and takes them to the national veteran's cemetery at Fort Smith so the kids can decorate the headstones with tiny American flags. Daniel also talks with two students about the veterans and what their lives have contributed to the quality of life in the United States today.
