Star-Spangled Inspirational Quote
... from a NJ high school student who wrote about GWOT fallen soldier - Army Specialist Robert Wise honored by today's featured IAF ...
"Tammy and David,
You don't know me at all. I am a high school student from New Jersey. For Veterans day, I had to write a paper on a fallen soldier. After watching the documentary on him and hearing his "Last Letters Home" I can already tell how much he meant to everyone. I am honored to write my paper on him and share his story and his sacrfice to people I know. It has been three years today and I just want you to know that he is still affecting people's lives and the ultimate sacrifice he made will never be forgotten. Thank you."
