Take a Veteran to School Day

Take a Veteran to School Day is a program developed to link veterans with students nationwide. Since 2007 thousands of schools nationwide have participated in Take a Veteran to School Day. These events provide a way for students to learn more about history and about the experiences of veterans from all backgrounds and walks of life. Inviting veterans to share their stories connects generations while helping our young people learn about the past.

Calcasieu Parish is fortunate to have volunteers from the local Marine Corps League Detachment #535. In conjunction with lessons on Vietnam, two volunteers spoke to the students in Mrs. Kirkendall’s American History classes.

Thank you to Sgt. Daniel Didelot (1965 graduate of Landry High) and Sgt. Bobby Hill.
