Moultonborough Academy Student and Teacher Participate in Normandy Ceremony



















Here is the link to the article in the Weirs Times .


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fifteen student and teacher teams from across the country are being given an extraordinary opportunity to tell the story of a fallen WWII hero from their respective home towns and pay their respects to this Silent Hero at the Normandy American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach. Each team consists of one teacher and his or her student. Teams select a Silent Hero who gave his or her life in World War II during or after the Normandy landings of D-Day and is memorialized at the Normandy American Cemetery. Each team spends a year researching the story of this Silent Hero through historical research such as war records, draft cards, and interviews with family members. Click here to continue reading...

Wholeheartedly agree Fred. We should celebrate these accomplishments. Our small district was one of the fifteen selected from around the country to participate. How great is that! My father was a D-Day veteran who landed on Normandy beach and I know from his stories how that forever impacted his life. We should never forget the sacrifices that generation made.
