This is my very first blog for Dream Big Sophie. First, thank you for checking out my website about kids, volunteerism and our world. My good friend and mentor, WWII Veteran Casimir Krolak of the Bethany Nursing Home, asked if he could come to my school, the Horseheads Intermediate School, to talk about his time in Italy and Africa during WWII. What luck that it was also the 70th Anniversary of V.E Day. He even brought my class an American Flag for us to keep.
