SUBMITTED PHOTO First-graders in Cindy Marshall’s class at Clinton Young Elementary set a “white table” on Veterans Day to honor all of the country’s military members. The idea stems from Margot Theis-Raven’s book “America’s White Table Cloth,” which is about the death of a young girl’s uncle who served in Vietnam. White tables are significant in that their place settings – never to be used – represent the courage, tears, struggles and sacrifices of service members. After setting the table the children recited the “Pledge of Allegiance” and later wrote thank-you letters to area veterans. The students asked that the table be left in place until Thanksgiving as a reminder of those serving in the armed forces.
