WWII veteran, Bill Strauss, spoke to Viola students about his experiences in WWII and, more specifically, the Battle of the Bulge. Strauss and members of the Salem VFW post honored the POW/MIA flag and answered questions from Sharmin Jennings's speech classes and Mr. Gardner's AP World History class. "Many of the students had not heard of the Battle of the Bulge, but have since done research and have a greater interest in American History. Men like Bill Strauss truly are the Greatest Generation, and I'm very thankful he is willing to give his time to our students," Viola teacher Sharmin Jennings said.
