Veteran Visits HS

Twelfth-grade students took a trip back in time with Robert Chiappone, a veteran who was wounded during the Vietnam War and subsequently received the Purple Heart. Mr. Chiappone discussed being drafted as a 19-year-old and being injured while on active duty. The students in Matthew Woythaler’s and Steven Martello’s classes are reading “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien, and Chiappone’s visit coincided with their lesson on the war.
