    NEB 4th grader, Connor Eastabrook, recently won 2nd place in the 9-12 age category in a statewide VFW essay contest (out of 24 PA Districts and 293 Auxiliaries). Contestants were asked to interview a veteran to learn how the effects of war impacted the lives of veterans and their families. After  interviewing his cousin John Paul Schmeckenbecher (who served in the Coast Guard for 30 years), Connor wrote an essay explaining what he learned from the interview and how it made him feel before, during, and after. He also shared how what he learned changed his understanding of the experiences veterans go through and how it affects their loved ones.
