Thurs. Nov. 8, 2018: The Carver Magnet School 6th grade classes enjoyed a special guest visitor when retired Captain Dan Burque came to share insight into the different branches of the United States military. Capt. Burque, a 30 year veteran who also attended the prestigious United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, explained to students the history and significance of Veteran's Day, along with information about various aspects of the military. These included the different ranks of service members, both enlisted and commissioned, explained various accomplishments and awards/medals that have been earned or given to military members, and used his singing and musical talents to share the different military hymns for each military branch.
Captain Burque, thank you for your visit, and most importantly, your service to our country!
