Salute to Veterans

Friday's show wasn't the first time we've done a special piece for Veterans Day.  When searching our library for the World War I and World War II footage that we used in the Fast Facts, I came across a report we filed back in 2003.

However, this was the first time we asked you to contribute to Veterans Day through I-Reports.  And I thought the material you sent in was excellent.  They not only gave you the chance to be featured on our program; they added a personal touch from you that lets the nation's veterans see they have support across the board. 

I'm sure Mr. Bohannan, Mr. Nadjowski, and Mr. Gerhardt are proud.  We're certainly proud of them, and I'm proud of you.

    I'm glad CNN decided to honor our veterans. CNN covers the whole country, and therefore, can reach out to almost all the veterans. I know they like being thanked and reminded how appreciated they are. We owe a lot to them, and this special is just one of the ways we show our appreciation. It doens't even have to be Veteran's Day for someone to show their respect and appreciation for a veteran in his or her neighborhood.

    My class would also like to add that we enjoyed the Veteran's show and feel that it was a very honorable thing to do.

    I would also like to send a SHOUTOUT! to all the Dutch Fork teachers!
