6th Grade Students were visited by WWII veterans Tom Blakey and Bert Stolier following their unit of study on WWII.
Blakey served as a paratrooper with the U.S. Army and “jumped” on D-Day behind Nazi lines in Normandy, France.
Stolier was present at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed by Japanese planes in 1941. He served in the Marine Corp from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay.
Students heard first-hand accounts of what these gentlemen experienced and heard a presentation from Mr. Ronald Abboud with the WWII Museum in New Orleans, LA.
