Veterans Visit Rogers Middle School

On Friday, Nov 9, Rogers Middle School invited veterans in for breakfast to honor their service. Over 55 veterans from all branches of the military attended, and $220.28 was raised for Greater St. Louis Honor Flight (http://www.gslhonorflight.org/).

Pictured above is Erica Meyer, physical education teacher at Rogers Middle School, with David Moorhead. Mr. Moorhead is 88 years young, an Affton resident  & his grandchildren have all gone through Affton Schools.  He was in the 503rd Airborne Division, and was the 5th man down on the ground at Carentan France during World War II. He had the distinct honor of being our oldest vet in attendance.
