One old soldier says thank you, students

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

To the Editor:

I want to take this opportunity to thank the students of North Putnam High School for their thoughtfulness and loyalty to the veterans this Veterans Day. The veterans appreciate what you did.

I am the recipient of Sharon's Class of 2012 card.

A little information about myself: I am almost 92 years old and I was a soldier of the 872nd Airborne Engineering Aviation Battalion.

I served in World War II in the Leyte Island Campaign, also in the Okinawa Campaign and with the Army of Occupation in Japan.

A special thanks to Sharon. I appreciate it.

Ex-Sgt. Dale Covert
