My tour guest yesterday was Thomas, a Korean War veteran and also a Vietnam War veteran.

While visiting the WWII Memorial, a group of wonderful 8th grade kids from Oregon on their class trip to Washington came up to us and wanted to shake Thomas’ hand and thank him for his military service. Each kid and each chaperone wanted to take a picture with Thomas. They then proceeded to give a round of applause as we walked back to the pedicab.

I forgot to get the name of the Oregon school that these kids attend, but they are doing a wonderful job out there. Kids, you all were certainly te highlight of Thomas’ trip to Washington DC. Thank you.
