RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Downstairs at Mount Rose Academy, there are military exhibitions on the walls that you should not miss. There are flags representing the six branches of the military. Then there’s this wall of men and women who have served or are now serving in the military.
It was an 8th grade Leadership Class project in which students not only learned about our country’s military, but also realized that someone in their family had served in the military.
“My grandfather fought in the Viet Nam War,” says Billie Peek, with the leadership class. “It was cool to see how our family was connected in that way through family members,” says Cassidy Garman also with the 8th grade leadership class.
8th Grader Quinn Oster says he discovered his great grandfather served in World War II. “Then my dad showed me we had his uniform. We had like this song book, his badge. All the stuff,” he says.
