I am very proud of my Soldier Girl and my grandson,Sgt,Karri Allison is not only a great mother,but a very dedicated soldier,she takes great pride in the uniform and all that wear it,and with that being said,when she read the article she was filled with pride,that Alexei and his classmates worked so hard to help her,but when she seen the article there was a mistake and most of us would say no big deal,but it is a big deal to our soldier,it states that Karri found the orphanage when she was out on patrol,but in fact it was American soldiers that had found it and told Karri about it,she started right away trying to figure a way to help.That is the type of young woman our soldier is,she would lke to pass on credit where credit is due,to the American Soldiers and to the Grade 4 class at Lakecrest.I myself do not see this as a big problem just a misprint,but to her it is,so I promised her I would set it straight.Thank youDamn Proud Military Mom

Good going Lakecrest . Too bad the public school system wouldn't get their students involved. I truly understand what this young Sgt is trying to do ; As a young rifleman in The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada , during a tour to Cyprus in 1965 , our Battalion supported and cleaned up a badly run orphanage in Kyrenea , to the point when it was all cleaned up and repaired , the Battalion held open house , with lots of food and ice cream and the Battalion Drums and Bugles providing music . Keep up the good work Lakecrest .

The students of Lakecrest have a worthy cause and I am sure that they will stand proud. Children who know what is going on and support Alexei's Mom in support of the Ophanage. As their teacher said she is proud of her students and she should be.
