Celebration teaches great history lesson

I regret that I was unable to attend this year’s National Anthem Day festivities on Sept. 13 due to a prior engagement. However, I want to thank all 400-plus students, third through sixth grade, who do such a great job singing patriotic songs.

Special recognition of the educators, teachers and instructors who diligently have instilled in the students a great history of the U.S.A. via songs, from the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, on to the honoring of all veterans and families from World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and the Middle East wars, including Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Again, sorry I could not make it, but congratulations and many thanks to students and teachers of the Oregon Elementary School for a very necessary lesson during these troubled times.
