Honoring Those Who Have Served
Today is Veterans Day here in the United States, a day to honor those who have fought in our armed forces. Earlier this week, Cablevision’s Power to Learn program brought U.S. Congressman and former marine Michael Grimm to IS 228 David A. Boody School in Brooklyn for a “Take a Veteran to School” event.
Students had created cards and artwork for the visiting veterans and their families:
