The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Veteran's Day programs were spectacular


November 15, 2018

To The Eagle:

I feel extremely fortunate to have attended two spectacular Veteran’s Day programs produced by Mike Thomas and the Wahkiakum High School Leadership Class. The November 7, 2018 assembly featured Vietnam Veterans Ron Kimmel, Brian Elliott and Edward Garcia with videos expressing their individual experiences and patriotic views. Last year Mike produced an equivalent Veteran’s Day program featuring Tom Irving, Ralph Keyser and Ralph Kenner expressing their individual experiences and patriotic views. Both programs were amazing and made one proud to be an American.

I would hope both these Veteran’s Day tributes will be added to the Wahkiakum school curriculum as they are awe inspiring, historical and enlightening. Also kudos to Darla Mead and the WHS band for playing the ‘March of the Armed Forces’ as members of the VFW stood in recognition of their service years.
