In an effort to honor Veterans Day, Senator Joe Robach has partnered with Time Warner Cable, The History Channel and Greece Athena Middle School to host ‘Take A Vet To School Day’. This is a nationwide cable initiative that links veterans of all ages with young people in our schools and communities.
On November 9, approximately 600 Athena Middle School students will assemble to listen to the experience of four local veterans. The panel of veterans will discuss their service during wartime and what it is like to be in the armed forces. There will be veterans representing different branches of the service as well as different times in history. Senator Joe Robach will serve as the moderator for the event.
Senator Joe Robach stated “It is because of our veterans that Americans have the privilege to choose their career, pursue an education and enjoy the many basic freedoms that so many take for granted every day. There is no more important way to learn about our history then by hearing the firsthand accounts of the brave individuals who serve. I applaud the veterans who are participating in this event today and am confident that their stories will impact these students in a very positive way.”
