Cheering Crowds of Children at World War II Memorial

World War II MemorialHastings Middle School  (more than 200 of them) schoolchildren lined up on either side of the South entrance to the World War II Memorial to cheer Indiana’s vets as they left and welcome Nebraska’s veterans as they arrived at the Memorial.  They were in DC to help Bill Richards celebrate his “4 Chaplains” award ceremony at the Iwo Jima and then rushed over to the World War II Memorial to greet the vets.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as the veterans proudly walked the gauntlet of cheering students who were joined by everyone at the Memorial.  It was perhaps the most moving tribute I have seen yet to our WWII Vets and I am looking forward to the Summer as more is revealed.
