Pelican Elementary School awards veteran ticket to DC
Students and staff at Rhinelander’s Pelican Elementary School commemorated Veterans Day this week with traditional red, white and blue, but added a special presentation.
Marine Corp. Special Forces Phillip Herbig is a Vietnam War veteran and the father of Pelican teacher Shawn Belanger. He was presented with a seat on one of the 2019 Honor Flights to Washington D.C. Pelican staff and students raised the money through donations and popcorn sales.
The Pelican family thanked veterans for all they do, and will continue to recognize veterans throughout the year.
