Students at PS 84 got the chance to meet and thank the men and women of Fort Hamilton Army Base during an “Afternoon of Thanks” at the Williamsburg school on Jan. 27.
The guests of honor at the event — arranged through the school’s Learning Through an Expanded Arts Program — fielded questions from the kids, many of whom had never met a soldier, including: “When will the war end?” “Do you get to see your family?” “What countries have you seen on your travels?” and, “Is it hard work?”
The students gave the soldiers handmade cards thanking them for their commitment and dedication to our country and recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Capt. Christina Mouradjian sang “God Bless America,” and everyone enjoyed cake and refreshments. The students capped off the day by singing the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
