Jefferson Veterans

Second-grade students at Jefferson Elementary School learned about the significance and history of Memorial Day when several veterans spoke to four classes about their experiences being veterans. Students made paper American flags and waved them proudly as veterans entered the classrooms. The veterans told the students if they were drafted or if they enlisted in the armed forces, which war they served in, and what they encountered and experienced. Students had questions prepared, and veterans happily answered. The visit concluded with students thanking veterans for their service.
