Students and staff at Emerald Cove Middle School recently honored World War II veterans by writing letters of appreciation. On Sept. 16, the veterans will be embarking on an honor flight from Orlando to Washington, D.C. While on the flight, they will be greeted by surprise packets of cards and letters. Some soldiers will not get any surprise mail, and that is where the Emerald Cove family comes in. Students feel it is important to honor these service members, making sure that every veteran has a letter.
