4th grade teacher M. Cook with flag

4th grade teacher Ms. Stephanie Cook was honored by former Yukon student Major Mike Wechsler with the U.S. flag that flew over his base during his deployment in Afghanistan. Ms. Cook and her class had corresponded regularly with then Captain Wechsler and his unit sending them Christmas letters, Valentine gifts, and notes thanking them for their service. Major Wechsler received a hero's welcome when he visited Yukon between deployments. Ms. Cook herself is an U.S. Army veteran.
