VFW Members at Kirby's Mill School

- 10/25/2018

On October 25th 2018, military representatives from Medford VFW Post 7677 and U.S. Army Recruiters from the Medford Recruiting Station attended a question and answer session with 5th graders. All of the 5th grade students were also participants in the Walter J. Levy Patriotic Essay Contest sponsored by Medford VFW Post 7677.

Topics covered included: 

  • The meaning of Veterans Day
  • An overview of New Jersey’s contributions to World War I
  • Individual experiences of the guest speakers 
  • And general questions about our military. 

It was a most enjoyable hour of interacting with these bright, attentive and respectful students.
