For the second year, a group from the East Valley Marines attended Patriotic Day at Akimel A-al Middle School. During the general assembly, the school honored the veterans of the five services.

Following the assembly, the Marines met with seventh-graders, telling about some of their personal experiences and answering questions. The wrap-up of the session was a student-involved demonstration of a helicopter rescue in a battle situation.
