These thoughts and sentiments were written exactly as the first grade children spoke them.
We hope as you read them, you feel honored and appreciated for being the heroes and heroines that you are. It is people like you who make our country great.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Jacki sent a folder of pictures that the Suite 16 Kids created. A copy of the folder was given to the VA Hospital in St. Paul, MN. Here are the images from that folder.

From Mitchell: My Grandpa was in the war and he didn't die. Thank you for saving our freedom and our lives.
From Tim: Thank you for fighting...in my picture you 'll see the Wall for the Viet Nam veterans. Gratefully, Tim
From Michelle: Thank you for being a veteran. I'm happy that you're alive.
