Tom Novitski, a Marine Corps staff sergeant who served during World War II and the Korean War, spoke to fifth-graders at South Elementary School in Trappe. His visit was timed to coincide with the classes’ assignments to write thank-you notes for the Honor Flight Network, a program that flies World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II memorial. As part of the itinerary, the veterans are given notes thanking them for their bravery, service, and sacrifice.
