Veterans Day in the Valley
Vets were honored this year by businesses and restaurants, even by school children in our community. I attended the Gardnerville Elementary School celebration that honored young and old alike. There were World War II vets and active vets and so many who served in so many ways. Children were outside with welcoming banners, and vets even had designated parking. The best part for me was the letter from a student my husband received just last week. “On behalf of G.E.S., I would like to thank you for your Air Force service to our great country. I have always dreamed of being in the Air Force, flying in the sky battling. If you go back to battle, I wish you good luck. Be safe.” Thank you, teachers, for helping your students to honor those who serve our country so well.
