Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fourth graders at Washington Elementary school got a history lesson from a Korean War Veteran.

Mark Seeba, a teacher at the school invited his dad, Walt Seeba, an 87-year-old veteran to speak to his class.

Walt told students about his journey to Korea, and the time he spent there.

He showed them his medals, a flag, and other wartime and military memorabilia.

One student asked Walt if he was happy to serve in the war.

"I said, no I wasn't happy necessarily, but I was grateful to be able to help and serve, cause I'm one of the guys that didn't have to give up their life," said Seeba.

The students have been learning to better understand why Veteran's Day is a national holiday.
