Charlie and Dave and Pat and YOU: On this Veterans Day, a special contribution from Mrs. Yoder’s 5th Grade Class at North Ithaca Elementary (runs 7:44)…..
Here are the transcripts of the messages Charlie read from the 5th grade students of Mrs. Yoder:
We appreciate our veterans for many reasons. They do important things for us, even if they don’t all go to war. When they were in the service, they were willing to put their lives on the line to protect us. If you just stop and think for a second, you will realize that without veterans, we wouldn’t have the freedoms we have today like going to school, playing outside, walking down the streets of town, and many others.
I would like to recognize one veteran I know. Jeremy Kemp served in the marine corps. He was shot three times. That happened in Fallujah, Iraq while he was trying to disable a car IED (Improvised Explosive Device.) His bravery and courage helps me understand that it is important to recognize veterans.
For all veterans; land, sea, and air, we thank you for your service. God bless our veterans and our free America!
Veterans, we appreciate you more than we can say. You served our country, and you fought for what is right. We can’t believe what you have done. You have sacrificed your lives for your country. You never had to go fight, but you took time out of your life to serve America.
Without our amazing and strong veterans, we wouldn’t have freedom. For example, there would still be slavery! Without our veterans, there would still be dictators like Hitler.
My fifth grade class is going to the Veterans’ Day ceremony here in Ithaca at 11 AM on November 11. We are hoping that this letter encourages other people to go to ceremonies that are close to them. One reason to attend is you might get to meet a real veteran who served. If you’re lucky, you may get to hear what it was like in a war or a part of a war. Another reason to go is to show how much you appreciate your USA veterans and thank them for what they have done. One last reason is to show that their sacrifices aren’t unnoticed by other people of all ages, including kids!
There are endless possibilities in life because of our veterans. God bless America and God bless our Armed Forces.
It’s unbelievable what you do for our country. I have never met any veterans, but I know they sacrifice their lives for the U.S.A. We love what you veterans do for our country.
We think it is important to thank veterans. Thank you to your family, too, for sharing you! They must miss you when you are gone, and it must be hard to know everything you go through. You didn’t have to, but you chose to make these sacrifices for our country.
Veterans’ Day is to honor the brave men and women who entered the armed forces. Those people left behind so much to protect the United States of America. I just wanted to say thank you to all veterans. You had to leave your family for months at a time to train or to go to war. I also want to thank all veterans for serving so kids have the freedoms to play outside, hunt, play sports, and go to school.
Veterans did not have to fight to be a hero. You can be a doctor, medic, engineer, or mechanic. So even the veterans supporting the fighters are heroes. That is why we are proud of veterans that served in any way.
In my mind, every day is Veterans’ Day. Thank you!
God bless our veterans for serving in wars and dedicating their time and lives to saving our country. Thank you for giving us freedom and for serving in the armed forces. Thanks to veterans, we get freedom and live freely.
America is a free country, thanks to the veterans. November 11 is the official day we honor our veterans. America has been celebrating Veterans’ Day for about 100 years. Let us never forget about all the men and women who served our country.
We all salute the veterans.
Aubrey C. and Sage L.
We appreciate our USA Veterans!
Charlie and Dave and Pat and Art and YOU: The weekend, ahead of Veterans Day, the #1 Movie at the box office was “Midway”, but does anyone remember the original version from 1976 and its star-studded cast? (runs 5:19)…..
Did you HEAR what happened with our Saginaw Spirit on Sunday at Windsor?
This is why we say “never turn your radio off from a live sporting event”…..
Spirit down 6-3, scored 3 goals in final 1:20 to tie game, and then won it in Overtime!
Blade Jenkins made it 6-4 with 1:20 to play (that’s when Spirit pulled goal tender for extra attacker)
Jake Goldowski scored with :51 to play and it was 6-5 (and extra attacker still on ice)
Damien Giroux tied the game 6-6 on his goal with just 1.6 to play
Then, Reilly Webb won it in OT
Voice of Spirit Hockey, Joey Battaino, has the Goldowski, Giroux, and Webb calls. Every Spirit Game is on 100.5 NewsRadio WSGW and online WSGW.COM
Reminder! Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 12, it’s the Saginaw Spirit Show from 6-7pm at Tri-City Brewing Company in Bay City. Enjoy FREE Jet’s Pizza while supply lasts. Joey Battaino and WSGW’s Art Lewis are joined by coaches, players, and more highlighting all things Saginaw Spirit!!!
