LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
On Friday, March 2, Chief Master Sgt. Scott Meyers along with 20 other airmen from Los Angeles Air Force Base participated in Buford Elementary School’s “Read Across America” program in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ 114th birthday.
“Read Across America” is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2 to commemorate the author, Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. This event also allows the Air Force to interface with local schools and have fun while promoting the importance of reading to our youth.
Students from third, fourth and fifth grade listened as Air Force members read with enthusiasm and laughter. Afterward, the students asked the airmen a lot of questions ranging from “what do you do in the Air Force” to “have you been to war?”
