WWII POW Featured Speaker at Veterans Day Event

american-flag-2aA World War II veteran is the featured speaker at Centennial Junior High’s 12th annual Veterans Day Assembly. Mr. Leonard L. Robinson is 94 years old and served our country for five years during WWII, enduring three and a half years as a prisoner of war during the Bataan Death March. He was a spotter in the war and could identify whether a plane was American or Japanese, which was important while stationed in the Philippines. After Mr. Robinson was freed from war camp in Japan, he returned to the United States, later married, and became a preacher. He has called Wyoming his home for about 40 years, but originally grew up in Denver, CO. He and his wife raised two daughters and one son in Cheyenne. Mr. Robinson currently lives in Casper.

The assembly will take place on Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 in the Centennial Gymnasium at 8:15 a.m. It will feature music from the Centennial Band, Orchestra, and Choir.

All veterans and their families are invited as special guests for the assembly. Veterans and their spouses are also invited for coffee and rolls prior to the assembly from 7:30 – 8 a.m. in the Centennial Library.

If you are a veteran and plan to attend, please RSVP to Sarah Hanson at 253-2861 or sarah_hanson@natronaschools.org.

Centennial Junior High is located at 1421 S. Waterford in Casper.
