Members of Vietnam Veterans of America Bucktail (Pa.) Chapter 720 were among the more than 100 honored by students at Brockway Area Elementary School’s annual Veterans Day event last month. Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7252, American Legion Post 95, the American Legion Auxiliary, the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Humanitarian Riders also appeared.
The event included breakfast and student performances. “We begin preparing at the beginning of October,” teacher Bert Ginther told the Courier-Express. “We cover all the wars from World War II up to current conflicts. We also watch Medal of Honor videos, and the interviews with our Gold Star Mothers. This year, the Vietnam Veterans of America came in to talk with all the sixth-grade students.”
