On Friday, March 28, 2014, SPC Anthony Maniace came to visit Mrs. Moschella’s class and thank them for all of the wonderful packages and Christmas cards they sent to him while he was in Afghanistan. SPC Maniace spoke to the students about his experiences and the different cultures of the various soldiers and people he met during his deployment. As a class, we celebrated his return with a party and made welcome home and Thank You signs. The students were thrilled to meet him and listen to his stories.
SPC Maniace also visited several other classes to say thank you for their holiday cards and good cheer. He told all the students that he shared the cards with many soldiers and they all taped the cards in their barracks and also up in the Army vehicles. The holiday cards made everyone at FOB Apache feel supported and loved during the holiday season.
