June Ambrose and Dan Parker of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #1943 hold a sign made for them by Debbie Bacher’s First Grade class at Sassarini School. The visit was coordinated by student teacher Jennifer Perry, at right, whose husband is a veteran of the war in Iraq. “The kids wanted to say thank you to all the veterans,” said Parker. “They were very grateful. We couldn’t believe how many hugs we got.” Each student made a flag and contributed to the poster, which are all now on display in the lobby of the Veterans Building.
