11 Nov 2015 - Coray Canyon Elementary Visit

To All from Commandant Grisier:

I went to the post office today to mail some letters and while there I found four (4) letters addressed to the Commandant Marine Corps League, P.O. Box 553, St George UT from children attending the Coral Canyon Elementary School.  While the envelopes were addressed by the children, inside was a form letter addressed to "Dear Veteran."  It read as follows:

Dear Veteran, At our school, Coral Canyon Elementary, the fifth grade is preparing our songs for singing in the Veterans Parade and to our Veterans that we do every year.  We have been learning of the many sacrifices you made for all of us and we wish to honor you on this special day.  I would like to invite you to our school for our Veterans Day Program on November 11, 2015, at 2:30 pm, Coral Canyon Elementary, 3435 East Canyon Crest Avenue, Washington, UT.


Each letter included the name of the child that sent the letter, they are:  Phoebe Galicia, Edyson Hernandez, Laken Smith, Carson Wood.

I realize that we have a parade on the 11th.  The parade should be over by 0930.  I would appreciate if at least four Marines could join with me and attend the Coral Canyon Elementary School to recognize and personally thank the children for their letters and their patriotism. Uniform will be ceremonial or red shirt/black trousers.

A sign-up sheet is attached at the top of this post.

D'Arcy E. Grisier, Commandant
