Today is Veterans Day and most government offices are closed. Some school districts, including Los Alamos, close schools, but Santa Fe Public Schools remains open. I’m heading over to Sweeney Elementary School where a re-dedication of the school to vet Robert Sweeney will occur at 10 a.m. Another Santa Fe public school, Nava Elementary School, is named after VFrancis Xavier Nava, a Santa Fean who died while serving in Vietnam. To those who served, thanks. I’ll post a blog on the Sweeney event later today; you can visit today’s New Mexican to see my non-education related story on the efforts of local Vietnam vets to collect photos of all New Mexicans who died in battle (including Nava) on today’s front page of The Santa Fe New Mexican.
