This past November, R-man got notified that he received first place in the OK district 12 VFW's Patriot's Pen essay. We were so excited that he was awarded this honor. As he said, "It's usually someone else who wins that kind of stuff."
Last Friday, his teacher held an assembly. He read his essay aloud and was presented his award. He doesn't like speaking in front of crowds but did a great job. His dad and I were so proud. Papa and Granna drove up to attend as well. It was special to them because Papa has always been very involved in the VFW in Sentinel.
I'm really proud of this kid.
