Special Veteran’s Visit


In honor of Veterans Day, Rushmore teacher Alexis Krummenacker welcomed her father Major James Cear to her classroom for a discussion about his experiences as a veteran and the significance of the special day. Major Cear, who was a navigator in the Air Force on B-52s and C-130s, showed photots to students and provided his personal accounts based on them. He also spoke about how his experiences helped shape him for his current position as senior vice president for Angel Flight, which flies sick children and adults for free to hospitals for treatment.

The special visit served as a unique way for students to learn about the importance of celebrating the nation’s heroes.
