The GAMS Tech Magnet School National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was excited to learn about the Hudson Valley Honor Flight Program for veterans during a special assembly recently. On Monday, February 10, 2014, Martha Purdy (Veteran Coordinator), Jerome Greco, a WWII Navy veteran, and his wife, Cida, visited GAMS.
After watching a short informational video, Greco shared many WWII facts, memories, and stories of enlisting, his service, the time period in American history, his world travels, and his further higher education.
GAMS students are eager to go to Stewart Air Force Base in April for the next Honor Flight. They will greet the veterans and give them ‘mail’ and goodies for the flight.
The GAMS NEHS has already had a very busy year and are also in the midst of the Books-for –Soldiers drive, sending books oversees to our currently-serving armed forces.
