To the editor: During the school year I asked the students of CB Smith to make Valentines for the deployed soldiers. The valentines were sent to Kuwait, Afghanistan and Air Craft Carrier. I was hoping I’d hear from the soldiers before school was out, but I didn’t. Recently I received notes from soldiers, they were sorry they couldn’t answer each card because the students asked some interesting questions. They asked me to thank the students, it was very sweet of the and it brought a touch of home and they weren’t forgotten.

The soldiers thank C.B. Smith School
