Thank You, Veterans

Today the students at Woodglen School joined all Americans as we celebrate Veteran's Day.  First known as Armistice Day, a day to commemorate the end of World War I and honored those who served in that war, the day was changed in 1954 to Veteran's Day to honor all American Veterans.

Today, we honor veterans, past and present, celebrating and honoring them for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Woodglen School's own Mr. George Perasso, a United States Marine, is among the many who have served our nation with honor and valor.  We thank him and all the other brave men and women who served and continue to serve.  They serve for you and me.

Thank you so much for recognizing the Veterans of today and yesterday. My 86 year old father served our country during World War II and the Korean War in the 101st Airborne. He was so proud of his accomplishments and shared his stories with my children. Today he resides at the Delaware State Veterans Home and is stricken with Alzheimers. When I visit him I see all the wonderful men and women who have served our country and thank them for all that they have done. It is so important that today's youth remember these Veterans.
