Erik explained to the students what it means to be a veteran and how they can respect and thank those who fought for their freedom. He showed his shadowbox with medals, pins, and a flag.

   After his message, he answered numerous questions from the curious students. Students were then invited to create cards for veterans and soldiers. Materials for the cards were paid for by Nicole Allerdings received from a community service grant. She organized this event as her last project paid for by the grant she received from an organization called generationOn.
