WWII veteran honored to be guest

To the Editor:
I was fortunate recently to get acquainted with staff and students at Merrimack High School.
I had sent a note to Jan, head of the National Honor Society, as they send students to make leaves, etc., for the elderly and/or disabled. She then invited me to dinner at the school cafeteria.
Two days later, I received an invitation from Allen Lemay and endorsed by Peter Petrigno to speak to three classes about my experiences during WWII.
It was an enjoyable and informative time. The students asked questions, were attentive and well mannered. I told them about the facts of who and where the flags were raised on Iwo Jima and other information not known by the public.
