It’s the WSGW Tuesday Morning Team Show with Charlie and Dave and Pat and YOU…..


WSGW Honors All Veterans on this Veterans Day 2020






Charlie and Dave and Pat and YOU:     We read the Veterans Day messages from Miss Yoder and her 5th Grade Class at Ithaca North Elementary (runs 3:56)…..

Every year for Veterans Day, Miss Yoder asks her 5th Grade Class at Ithaca North Elementary to share their thoughts and thankfulness on paper.   We share some of their thoughts with You.   Thank you, Miss Yoder, and your inspiring 5th Grade Class at Ithaca North Elementary…..

Veterans are important to me because my Grandpa Mac is a veteran. He sacrificed time from his life to serve in the Vietnam War. During the Vietnam War, he met a lady that is now my Granny – so I wouldn’t be here if Grandpa Mac had not served! I appreciate other veterans too because they gave us freedom and a life that none of us will forget. Since veterans are very important to us, we should show respect to them. Thank you, veterans, for serving and giving Americans the wonderful life we live.

– Charlee M.


Veterans are very important. Those who serve in the armed forces of the United States of America risk their lives for our freedom. During their service, veterans don’t get to see their family very often, nor do they get to come home that often either. Having veterans here today is a big honor. The veterans everywhere should be very proud of themselves for serving America. I am thankful for our veterans.

– Karley B.


Veterans mean a lot to me because some of my family are veterans. My great-grandpa Roy Middleton fought in World War Two. My Grandpa Bill Middleton was on a warship. My dad tells me stories about building airplanes in the navy. Because these veterans are so important to me, I would like to thank anyone who served in the military. They risked their lives just to protect us. They missed their families, but they were protecting us. So the next time you see a veteran, just say, “Thank you for your service.” Maybe that’ll put a smile on their face.

– Tristen M.


Being a veteran is a person who sacrifices their life. My grandpa was a veteran. He was a marine. He served in Vietnam. He got a purple heart because he was wounded as a result of enemy action while serving in the U.S. military. The importance a veteran has to me is a lot. The veterans served our country, helped us have rights, and we should all be thankful for them.

– Ava C


I would like to honor veterans. I have many family members who were in the wars. My great-grandpa LaVern Smith served as a medic in World War II. My great grandpa Walter Hanslemann was in World War II, and he served as a sergeant. My great-uncle Michael Smith served in the Vietnam War. He was killed in action.

Because of all these veterans, I know that veterans do so much for this country. We need them to know that we appreciate them. They fought for this country, and they should get thanked. If you are a veteran, thank you, thank you!

– Nora V








Charlie and Dave and Pat and Art and YOU:     You never know when you are in the presence of a hero, as Charlie discovered on his new hockey team, with a story for Veterans Day (runs 4:17)…..
