Thank You Veterans!!

 Matt Larson

Matt is the father of Gretta who is in our class.  He joined the army when he was just out of high school.  He served as a military police officer. He was stationed at an army base in Texas and also spent three months in Saudia Arabia. He shared his uniform with us and expained the pins on his coat.  He brought pictues of his work in Saudia Arabia. He also shared about the cloths that people in Saudia Arabia wear on their heads.  Different colors are worn to show their status in society.

Amber is a para educator here at Lakeview Elementay.  She served in the National Guards for seven years.  She talked about the time she spent in Kosovo.  Her roll there was as a liason for the people of Kosovo.  She would spend time talking to the people about their fears during the war in their country.  Amber told the kids about the differences between schools in America and in Kosovo.  I think we are all thankful for Lakeview.
