In an effort to show respect toward the nation’s veterans, third-grade students from John Pearl Elementary School were recently visited by two active military servicemen along with Suffolk County Legislator William Lindsay III in support of his Valentines for Veterans initiative in which they created tokens of appreciation for the visiting veterans. 

Meeting in the school’s atrium, the students were elated to interact with U.S. Marines Sgt. Davis and Sgt. Ferraro. The students were given the opportunity to ask informative questions of the special guests, inquiring as to why they joined the military in the first place, and their favorite part about serving the country. 

The veterans informed the students that they’ve completed tours overseas in countries such as Afghanistan, Kuwait and Korea, and are currently pursuing their bachelor’s degrees from St. Joseph’s College located in Patchogue. 

Prior to the conclusion of the event, Legislator Lindsay thanked the veterans for their service, along with thanking the students of John Pearl Elementary School for participating in his annual Valentines for Veterans event.
