Veteran's Day 2015

I have a beautiful memory of the day.

It was my personal pleasure to tell parts of my WWII story to the students of four schools on this Veteran's Day. There was a mix of students in first, fourth and eighth grades.

My presentation was for the most part respectful of their ages. In each school students sang with me a few lines of the famous song “My Buddy,” honoring those who sacrificed their lives for their country.

Students were very respectful and I received many personal messages thanking me for my presentation and service to our country.

Over 300 students honored Veteran’s Day 2015 with me!

Special Thanks go to Carol Ford, Glenn Hine and Stephanie Gessner for making these presentations possible. They have served as guardians on the Indy Honor flights and are special people in my life.
