Vietnam veteran James Smith poses with some MMS students by their Tribute to Our Troops display. Smith visited sixth graders to share his experiences. All MMS students recently completed a project in which they each interviewed an American veteran. Students then created a display with their veterans’ photographs and descriptions of their service. This project is part of a larger unit about patriotism in which students wrote essays to compete in the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen essay contest. 95p1.jpg
