Thank you to the Vietnam War Veterans Association who came in to speak to our students at Robert M. Finley Middle School and Glen Cove High School Nov. 7.

Eighth-grade and 10th-grade students received a full-class-period presentation about the importance of remembering and honoring our veterans, and heard the individual life experiences of veterans during their military careers and civilian life. Toward the end of the presentation, students could ask questions and interact with the veterans, who represented different branches of our military. Special thanks to the following veterans who spoke to the students and spent the day with us:

Jerry Bryne
Bob Ciappone
Gary Glick
Paul Grieco
Paul Mundy
Eric Spinner
Richard Winter
Pat Yngstrom

The district salutes and thanks all the brave men and women who have served and are serving our nation.
