Last November, Bureau Valley South students in Ashley Stabler’s first-grade class wrote servicemen thanking them for their service. U.S. Army Sgt. Brody Hall, originally from Princeton, recently visited the classroom to express his appreciation. Sgt. Hall, an Army Ranger, is a also Ranger instructor for the tactical mountain phases. Hall thanked the class for the cards and told them the soldiers really appreciated them. He explained the decorations on his uniform to the kids, where he has been in the world and what his jobs have been in the Army.
