Kindergarten students at the Tucumcari Elementary School sent letters to military service members who are currently undergoing treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington D.C. to bring them a bit of holiday cheer.

The students were excited about the idea of writing and mailing letters to service members in the hospital, said Patti Cox, kindergarten teacher, and they worked hard on them.

Each letter has been signed by a student and thanks a service member for their service and wishes them a fast recovery and Merry Christmas, said Sandra Molinas, teachers aide.

Molinas said the cards would be mailed out this week.

Along with the kindergartners’ cards to the recovering soldiers, the second graders at TES sent cards to teachers aide Kim Rich’s daughter, Kristen Rich, who is currently serving in Jacksonville, Florida, with the U.S. Navy.

“We learned about Kristen and how she is in the Navy and wrote to her thanking her for her service,” said student Makaiah Romriell.

“Kristen is serving her country and protecting us,” said Aliyah Marez, another student.

“Kristen is keeping us safe from other countries and is fighting for our freedom,” said another student, Perlita Ramirez.
