November 26, 2012
The Mining Journal

Crossroads Christian Academy students from kindergarten through grade nine learned about Veterans Day from three area veterans during an assembly held at the school Nov. 12. William F. "Pete" Dollar, retired Army National Guard Staff Sergeant and former Marine; U.S. Coast Guard Marine Science Technician 2nd Class Trisha Willard (Retired); and U.S Coast Guard Marine Science Technician 1st Class Sean Willard shared information about the various branches of service; uniforms; types of duty; and some of the sacrifices and benefits of being in the military. The Willards displayed parts of their Coast Guard dress uniforms, while Dollar modeled a uniform similar to what he wore in Vietnam as a marine. Dollar is a member of Marquette Chapter 380 Vietnam Veterans and is past commander of the D.A.V. Chapter 22. In the photo, front row from the left: Claire Collins, Rachel Collins, Sadie Hildebrand, Levi Stauber, Josie Hildebrand, Erik Johnson, Cody Farwell, Tony Hildebrand and Cameron Maki. Second row: Dollar, Emersen Willard, Trisha Willard, Daila Rye, Sean Willard, Ethen Willard, Jonah Smith and Corey Jandreau. Third row: Samuel Vallin, Isaac Cooper, Mary Norton, Savannah Wood, Alex Richards, Trent Smith, Seth Elliott, Jonah Elliott and Kennan Johnson.
