On Nov. 8 Oshkosh North High School honors all local veterans. A big thank you to the school for a wonderful program. To the teachers, staff and students a job well done. Also must thank the Oshkosh North High School music department for your formal dress and performance. For the students that wrote us a letter, thank you. Bryanna Boese presented me with her letter with all the kind words. Bryanna keep your eyes on your goal of becoming a dentist and you will reach your goal.
I also believe a special thank you is needed for Julie Dumke, Rick Leib and Brad Weber who have for some time work with veterans and students on interviewing all veterans. They have done a great job. And of course, I must thank the young student that interview me and was my host for this program and others, Emily Daun. Emily you have been a wonderful person. I salute Oshkosh North High School for a program above and beyond the call of duty.
