Born and raised in LaFollette, he is still very active in the community.

Organizers say they hoped to show the kids the importance of military service.

"To learn about patriotism and the service that these veterans have done for our country and the sacrifices they have made and that freedom isn't free, there was a cost paid," said school administrator Ollie Medley.

General Stiner has a close connection to the school as he serves as one of its board members.
