Isabella He, a sophomore at Pittsford Mendon High School, began helping the veterans of the Rayson-Miller Post 899 in 2017. At that time, Izzy (as her friends call her) began the daunting task of organizing and archiving historical materials that Post 899 had collected over the years. These documents ranged from 1922 to the present. By helping restore the foundation of our local Post, the history of our WWI, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam veterans can continue to be preserved and shared. A huge undertaking for sure and a project very well done! Thank you Izzy!!!
In the past year, Izzy has invited multiple fellow high school students to help out our local Rayson-Miller Post veterans on various occasions: such as the Post's Memorial Day Ceremony, Fourth of July hot dog stand and guitar raffle, the Town of Pittsford's Food Truck Rodeo and Music Fest and most recently, Candlelight Night and a holiday performance for our veterans at Canandaigua Veterans Hospital.
Isabella He and her family, including her younger brother, and her some of her fellow students understands the needs of our veterans and are advocating the support of veterans in Pittsford. She has received much support from the Post Commander, Mr. Herdklotz, to start the group, Teens for Veterans.
Izzy would like to extend her invitation to anyone in the youth community that would like to continue this effort and benefit the people who have defended our nation and sacrificed much to do so.
If you are a Pittsford youth that would like to join and support Teens for Veterans, please email the group at Teens for Veterans
