Today we had a several classes interview a panel of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam Veterans. Students had prepared questions and expressions of gratitude for our veterans.
One highlight from today was World War II veteran Arden Pridgeon sharing his “vmail” and explaining to the students how the letters were sent on microfiche and then printed in the U.S. saving several thousand pounds in postage.
For the veterans, the highlight is always the thanks from the other classes. This class made posters to share with the veterans, which they really really appreciated!
We have more sessions coming up the rest of the year. December 7 is next. Hope you can join us!
That is so great for those kids to gain an appreciation for veterans, and I’m sure great for the veterans to see such young faces showing their support. Were the veterans in MI too?
Yes! Our local veteran organization – Lest We Forget – http://www.lestweforgetusa.org – schedules the veterans panel for me. It’s great!
