Mona Shores School Visit – 2017

Blog | 2017-06-27 | No Comments

Another great day spent remembering Eric with the Mona Shores middle school students. Over 130 students and chaperones Similar to their meetings the last nine years, Eric Wahlberg, a teacher at Mona Shores, arranged for the get together. Everyone gathered to visit Eric’s grave site and learn more about Eric’s life. Eric Wahlberg stated that over 3,000 students have now gone through his 3 day class which uses the example of Eric’s life to learn about duty, honor, integrity and the price of our freedom. It is very humbling and encouraging for my wife Wendi and I to learn that. Thank you Mona Shores!

Stay off the what?
