In honor of the upcoming holiday, U.S. military veterans visited eighth-grade social studies classes at Oldfield Middle School.

Donna Boyle, a U.S. Army veteran whose family has been in the service since the early 1900’s, spoke with Jeff Shade’s class. Boyle brought in items for the students to look at, such as medals, photo albums, and actual food rations. Boyle was also the only female veteran visiting, and students had many questions about her service.

Throughout the day, students inquired about different aspects of the military, such as boot camp, the types of weapons used and whether it was hard being away from family.

The veterans shared much about their lives, their experiences in the service, and the honor it was to protect America. All of the classes thanked them for their service.
