Past Commander Jim Blossey is now scheduling volunteers to participate in our annual Veterans Day in the Schools program. Participation ranges from simple attendance to be “saluted” by the students, to question and answer sessions in classroom settings to speaking to student assemblies. Your editor has participated in all three types and found them all gratifying.
In recent years we have had more demand from the schools than we have been able to fulfill, so your participation will be appreciated.
Veterans day is invariably a school holiday, so most of these programs are held the preceding week, generally late in the week, with the most popular day being the Friday before the holiday.
If you are able to participate, please email Comrade Blossey at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will schedule everyone and let you know where and when you are expected.
