Vets visit Union Ridge Elementary School

As a veteran, Jeff Lightburn was invited to visit a Union Elementary classroom in Ridgefield to read to students. He talked about being a vet and how one of his great-grandfathers was an American Revolution veteran. He spent about 45 minutes talking about what it means to be a vet, and pulled some interesting facts from the Day In The Life presentation we do in schools. There were lots of questions and wearing the uniform was a big hit!
