Take a Veteran to School Day – The Program

9 Dec

“Take a veteran to school day” took place on November 6, 2013. The local event was spearheaded by Charter Communications in conjunction with A&E and History Channel.

Linking veteran, students through event

History Channel launched the first initial events in 2007 to bring students of all ages and veterans together. Veterans from all walks of life and ages are invited to the events. This day is there for veterans to talk about their experiences while serving and for students to ask questions in order to understand the veterans service better. Click here to read more.

Celebrating Veterans Day early

As mentioned above the even here in Cheyenne was held on Nov. 6, at Cole Elementary School, in a way to kick off Veterans Day celebrations early. It was the first time the event was held in any of the Cheyenne schools. It is the hope to repeat the event in more schools next year with the local Charter Communications office and Laramie County School District 1 working together.

Enjoy the program

Veterans like Lt. Paul Kniss, WWII and Korea veteran (he was a POW in Korea); Mayor Rick Kaysen, Vietnam veteran; and Representative Lynn Hutchings (R-Laramie), Air Force veteran as her husband.
I recorded the even while taking pictures so the audio has some interference and added noise but the essence of the program is there. The event was held in two instances in order to split up the classes at Cole Elementary School.
