WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Charles Dunn of Big Pool said he was bothered by the lack of Veterans Day lessons and celebrations in Washington County Public Schools. Dunn, a parent with children in the school system, told Board of Education members during a meeting this week that he called 21 elementary schools and received calls back from 16. Of those, three had assemblies or a schoolwide function on Veterans Day, which was Nov. 11. Dunn said he called his children's school the day before and asked what they had planned on Veterans Day. Hearing it was not much, Dunn took his children to Martin L. "Marty" Snook Memorial Park in Halfway for the ceremony there.

When Donna Pile-Allen retired from the Washington County school system in June of 2002, she told The Herald-Mail's Pepper Ballard that when the next school year began she'd be sitting on the beach reading a novel and listening to the surf. But a combination of circumstances brought her back to the classroom where she's once again used the experiences of America's veterans to teach students how to write and research, as they learn about the sacrifices made by men and woman in uniform.

With Veterans Day approaching, I am once again reminded of what America's federal holiday truly means. As I am writing this column, there are many women and men serving our country in harm's way all around the world. Many of them are currently engaged in combat missions in Iraq and in Afghanistan to bring forth peace, liberty and democracy. Others are stationed overseas and here in the United States to protect our country and fight an ongoing global war on terrorism. This Veterans Day, my hopes, dreams and prayers are the following: That all American citizens will continue to pay honor and respect to all of our nation's veterans - those who have served our nation in the past and those who are serving our country today.
