Harry Strahlendorf spoke at a 3-day WWII Commemoration
which took place at Oakcrest High School.

Every class in the school for those three days was centered on WWII. Even in the Gym class, the kids learned how to march in cadence. Harry spent the day speaking to five classes of 15 year-olds, telling them about his father's personal sacrifice. He also asked the children to always remember our veterans to whom we owe so much. He displayed and discussed his memorabilia with the students to give them a deeper understanding of the subject.

Congratulations, Harry, for representing us all!
