Celebrating Veteran's Day!

Our class had a special guest to recognize Veterans Day! Imoni's uncle Joey came and graciously answered our questions about what it is like to be in the army and serve our country. We are so grateful for his service and really learned a lot about why we do honor our veterans on this day.
