How Mitchell Messer Served and Sacrificed for Our Nation

 

Essay Written by Arianna Reiley of West Creek Middle School
As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project’s “Interview a Veteran Contest”

Soldiers pledge their lives joining the military, knowing that they can expect the worst at war. They join to serve their country to their fullest extent. They join, knowing that they will do their country proud. One of those soldiers includes Mitchell Messer, an E6/Staff Sergeant in the U.S Army. Everybody knows the risks of joining the military. These risks include missing your family, getting hurt, or even worse, seeing your friends die around you. These are all risks that Mitch has taken.

When asked about why he joined the military, he had an elaborate answer. “I felt that it was my duty as an American.” Well, what does he mean? “Our ancestors founded this country on certain beliefs, and I felt it was my duty to share in the responsibility to uphold those standards and beliefs,” he answered.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – The Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) on board NASA’s newest Earth-observing satellite, NPP, acquired its first measurements on November 8th, 2011. The image shows the ATMS channel 18 data, which measures water vapor in the lower atmosphere. Tropical Storm Sean is visible in the data, as the patch of blue, in the Atlantic off the coast of the Southeastern United States.

The ATMS is one of five instruments on board the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project, or NPP, that launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA, on October 28th.

How Leon R. Sitter Served and Sacrificed for Our Nation

 

Essay Written by Seth P. Sitter of Clarksville Academy
As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project’s “Interview a Veteran Contest”

Today, I interviewed my grandfather Dr. Leon R. Sitter. During the interview we discussed his service in the Army from 1943-1946.

My grandfather was a staff sergeant of the US 86th Infantry division in WWII, and was awarded a bronze star. He fought at the crossing of the Rhine, marched through Nazi occupied France and Germany, and was one of the approximately 16 million men and women that fought for the allied cause in WWII.

He grandfather enlisted in the army at the age of eighteen, in his home town of Cobden IL. At the time of his enlistment, Cobden was a town of only 1000 people, and almost all of the men of enlistment age were either drafted or enlisted. Out of a town of only 1000, 14 men did not return from World War II.
