Veteran's Day 2010

Ed "Doc" Connor treated the students at Central Elementary to a fine discussion about Veteran's Day. Doc was a Navy corpsman during the Vietnam War. A corpsman is a trained sailor who is responsible for providing care to members of the US Armed Forces, first aid and trauma care on the battlefield (this name is used primarily in the Navy and Marine Corps; other branches use the term medic). Doc was dual enlisted in both the Navy and Marines. He taught the students why we should love our country and respect our flag. We thank Doc for his special presentation and for his service to our country.
