Benoit of Jennings was the honored guest. She is currently stationed in Iraq and was home for a two week visit. Specialist Benoit spoke about Army life on her base and her duties and about Iraq. She also brought pictures and sand from Iraq. Sand in Iraq is different from sand on our beaches. She was very informative. Students sang "God Bless the USA" as a closing to the program.
