On behalf of all of the students and staff of NSIS, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the active and retired U.S. Military Veterans of our community for their dedicated service to our Country. You have given of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally, while also sacrificing time away from your family and friends, in order to protect our freedom and liberties, not the least of which is a guarantee that every child has a right to a high-quality, free education.
Today is a day specifically set aside to do what should be done daily, and that is to thank you for your service to our country and for defending all those freedoms that we hold so dear.
It is our sincere hope that on this Veterans Day you find peace and happiness, and truly know how grateful we are to you!
I would also like to express our sincere gratitude to staff sergeant Sean O’Shea for taking the time to answer many of our students’ questions about military service. Sergeant O’Shea’s interview can be viewed by our community on the Northeast Scranton intermediate school website.
Mr. Hanni, Principal
