Cave Creek Students Bring Veterans’ Lives to Life

November 21, 2009 by  

Veterans deserve our thanks on Veterans Day, to be sure.  But Cave Creek high school students said “thank you” in a way that honors them on Veterans Day and well beyond.   Perhaps more importantly, they have found a way to help themselves and fellow Falcons appreciate Veterans in ways that will make a lasting imprint – perhaps for life. 

Look what Cactus Shadows High School students have been doing to honor Veterans in Cave Creek – read about the Cactus Shadows Arizona Heritage Project.  They have compiled three amazing books, each one filled with detailed life and military stories.  I have all three of them,  many of them signed by the Veterans themselves who shared their experiences with the students and their parents at the celebrations honoring them.  

Here is a recent article about the project from The Rodel Foundation of Arizona online: Oral History Project.  Congratulations, Cactus Shadows!  And Thank you, Veterans!
