For the ninth year in a row, the Gobles Elementary kindergarten classes decorated ornaments to adorn Christmas trees that were donated to the Trees for Troops organization by Wahmhoff Farms Nursery.
Sergeant Pharr graciously accepted the ornaments that will be sent, along with the Christmas trees, to military families who are stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia in Columbus.
The U.S. Army sergeant then spent some time talking with the students, and answering their eager questions.
A Diesel Mechanic, Pharr described to the students, “I’ve worked on things that have tires bigger than me,” and that he’s also ridden on every type of passenger helicopter that the Army uses. He explained that with the Army, he’s visited many different countries such as Ireland, Germany, Kuwait and Iraq.
Sergeant Pharr expressed sincere gratitude on behalf of the Fort Benning soldiers that will receive the Christmas ornaments from the Gobles Kindergarten students. The students then thanked Pharr for his service by way of a high-five line.
