BRUCETON MILLS — Third grader Levi Belanger isn’t sure if he knows anyone serving in the military, but he knows what they do, and he wants to thank them.

“I like that they’re brave and standing up for us, and they’re like risking their lives for us,” said Belanger as he wrote a thank you that began with the salutation, “Dear Hero.”

Belanger and other students in the Bruceton After School Explorers wrote letters as part of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day project by AmeriCorps members Joe Wakim and Vincent Marroquin.
