Aloha, Alaka`i O Kaua`i families,
On Monday, November 11, we will observe Veterans Day, honoring those who have served our country in the Armed Forces, including those in our Alaka`i O Kaua`i community. Our learners gave me cards for Veterans Day in celebration of my service as a U.S. Air Force veteran, and I want to personally thank them for their thoughtfulness.
President John F. Kennedy said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” On this Veterans Day, we hope you’ll join us in honoring those who served our country, and commit to doing all you can to ensure that flame of freedom never goes out. Additionally, we encourage you to consider some of the following volunteer opportunities.
