Ms. Pratt, Meeting Kids Around the World
Ms. Pratt joined the Marine Corps and was on active duty for four years from 1988 until 1992. Next, she joined the Reserves and has been in that since then. In her opinion, her greatest challenges were being called to action three times to serve. The lack of creature comforts was very difficult according to Ms. Pratt, as things like running water, air conditioning, and other things like that were unavailable on active duty. To Ms. Pratt, Veterans Day is a day to remember those who have served, and to honor them for their sacrifices to our country. The children that she met while on active duty, she says, reminded her of GMS students, because they had the same motivation to learn.

About the Authors
I'm Woody. I mostly worked on taking the interviews, and putting them in text form. I was motivated to work on this project because I felt that the Veterans deserved more recognition than they were getting, so I worked with Tony and Kyle to complete this newsletter, to get the veterans the attention they deserved.
I'm the founder and reporter for this interview. I wanted to do this idea because Veterans deserve respect and recongnition. Veterans are hereos and we should thank them for all their service.
I made most of the interview questions with Kyle. I took the video of the interviews. I picked to do this project because I believe that these Veterans worked so very hard to defend our country. I wanted to repay them with recognizing their sacrifices.
