Friday, November 17, 2017 -
In recognition of Veterans Day, Chestnut Hill Middle seventh-graders had the chance to meet four local veterans as part of the “Take A Veteran to School Day” Program.
Army veteran Herbert Dunmore, Army veteran Matt Hidek, Army veteran & New York State Assemblywoman Pamela Hunter and Navy veteran Bruce Tompkins stopped by the school to talk about why they chose to serve, what roles they played in the military and what they have done since ending their service. In addition, the four veterans spoke about what services and training programs are available to veterans today.
“Take a Veteran to School Day,” sponsored by Spectrum and the History Channel, encourages schools to connect veterans with young people to learn more about them and the significance of Veterans Day.
