 Hastings High put on a U.S.O. style show Saturday night in honor of our nation's veterans.

Free will donations were accepted for Wounded Warrior Project.

An air force veteran who graduated from H.H.S was honored at the event, and welcomed with tunes performed by the school jazz band.

Veterans in attendance were not only tapping their feet but smiling with pride.

"I'd like to thank all the people of Hastings for their support at the Veterans Recognition Parade, at this event, and I think there's several other events that'll be held," Vietnam Veteran Richard Freeling said.

Freeling is a U.S. Army Veteran from Kearney, where a Veterans Day parade will be held downtown on Monday.
