Veterans share war stories with classroom

Woodland — Veterans visited Melissa Sanders' third-grade class at Woodland Primary School on Veterans Day to tell stories and let children ask whatever was on their minds. The visiting veterans shared memorabilia, including dog tags and photos, and were serenaded in return by the kids who sang them the song "Thank You, Soldiers." This is the fourth year Sanders has hosted the visit in her classroom. "I find it to be a cathartic, poignant time for veterans and an opportunity for incredible learning for the students," she wrote in an email.
