Mark's assignment: Write one Veteran's Day Essay on a Veteran of your choice (to be entered into a school wide competition)
Mark informed Mom and Dad: night before
Mark's participation in writing the essay: little to none
It seems that Alan and I could still make it in 5th grade. We got a 100% and received an honorable mention in the school wide competition.
Thank you to Uncle Rick for being the coolest Veteran with the best stories that we know. It made for an interesting and exciting essay.
