A Hero’s Welcome for Navy ET Orner
It was nothing short of a hero’s welcome for Navy Petty Officer Taylor Orner when he arrived at Pine Street School and joined Ms. Susan Holcombe’s third-grade ODYSSEY class on Thursday, April 27. After months of sending letters, the students were finally able to take turns asking the 25-year-old Navy electronics technician questions. The class had been writing to Orner where he is stationed in Bahrain.
Orner expressed his appreciation that the children from Pine would take the time to write and said their support had been invaluable. And as for the kids themselves and the impression made by Oner’s visit, the exuberance in their voices and in their eyes said it all.
