First Graders from Abingdon Elementary celebrate Veterans Day

Students listen as a veteran talks about his experiences.On Friday, November 11th, the first graders at Abingdon Elementary celebrated Veterans Day with some very special guests! The fathers of two of our first grade students came to share with us about what it is like to be a veteran. Mr. Marcus Ball and Mr. Byron Sargent both served in the Marines and Army Reserves!

They told our first grade students about the different branches of the military, showed them parts of their uniforms, showed pictures from the times when they were deployed, and explained how special it is to be part of the military and to serve our country. The first grade at Abingdon Elementary would like to say a very special thank you to our special guests and all the veterans that help keep us safe!
