VISITING VETERAN - Alley Evans’ kindergarten class at Carr Elementary had a visit recently from a very special soldier. Corporal Michiel Ring, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, was invited to the classroom in recognition of Veterans Day which will be celebrated this week across America. Ring - who served in the Marines from 2000 until 2004 - talked to the students about being a Marine. The students found it especially interesting how Marines train during boot camp and help protect the freedom of all Americans. Ring brought in some of his memorabilia from his service including a uniform. Holding up two pieces of Ring’s uniform are Haillo Gray and Tyler Webster. In addition to being a veteran, Ring is also Evans’s brother. She is very proud of him and his service to the United States.
