Students in Mrs. Trebour's second grade class welcomed Mr. William Ober, a local Marine, into their classroom in honor of Veterans’ Day.  They had many questions for Mr. Ober, Commandant of the Huntington Detachment of the Marine Corps League, who was also named 2013 Marine of the Year at the New York State Marine Corps League Convention.  The students learned so much about the dedicated men and women of the Armed Forces who help protect our freedom!  We can't thank them enough!
