In honor of Veterans Day, students at Rocky Point Middle School and Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School penned messages of thanks, appreciation and gratitude to the nation’s veterans. 

As part of the initiative, students were invited to write letters to those who have served the country, create poems using the word “veteran” and otherwise express their praise for the volunteers. The completed pieces were compiled and delivered to those living at the Long Island State Veterans Home at Stony Brook University and those residing at Fort Bragg. 

The project was led by seventh-grade special education teacher John Mauceri and English Language Arts grades 6-12 chairperson Joseph Settepani with collaboration from JAE educator Gloria Meyer.
