ARMED FORCES COMMEMORATIVE DAYS DRAWS BIG CROWD
(Atlantic) Students from several area schools attended the Armed Forces Commemorative Days in Atlantic Thursday. Trace Peterson’s U.S. History class at Atlantic High School was just one of the many groups of kids looking through the exhibits throughout the day. Mr. Petersen says his class just ended their unit on World War II. Sophomore Harrison Hoegh was one of the students in Mr. Petersen’s U.S. History class. Hoegh said the most interesting part for him was listening to veteran Al Cranston speak about his experiences with U.S. Navy. Hoegh also mentioned that he had been to the Armed Forces Commemorative Days before but found it much more interesting this year since they have been learning about some of the battles in class.
