Mrs. Gale's 4th grade class enjoyed a special surprise visit right before the holidays! Mrs. Gale's son, Corporal Gale, and his friend, Lance Corporal Creary, came to visit the class and thank the students for writing cards to four Marines on Veteran's Day. Mrs. Gale's students had been reading and learning about Veteran's Day and were able to make a personal connection. Corporal Gale and Lance Corporal Creary are currently stationed on Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina. However, both Marines will be deploying overseas in February. The children  asked questions and learned about: their individual jobs, what it takes to get into the Marines, what the Marines stand for, how you get promoted, the types of uniforms they wear, what the pins/stripes mean on their uniforms, etc. They took pictures with the Marines and got to say, "Thank you," in person, for serving and protecting our country. How awesome is that?!!  Click on title to see more pictures.
