Marine Visits ACCS 4th Graders for Veterans Day

Commandant Douglas J. Rattazzi visited the ACCS 4th grade scholars Thursday. November 8, to speak about his military Marine experience!

Scholars were excited to hear about the training of the German Shepard guard dogs during his 19 months Morocco wanting to know how they could train their own pets!

They also asked about all of the ribbons and medals on his uniform, and were informed about how he received them, “not for taking part of something- but for doing something.”

Commandant Rattazzi is now the head of the Marine Corps League in New Jersey, which involves about 7,000 marines.

Thank you for your service, Commandant Douglas J. Rattazzi!

Happy Veterans Day to all who have served & protected our country!
