Belvedere students get some help from the Air Force drill team

Drill team performs for students.
The U.S. Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team “spun, flipped, and tossed” their 11-pound M-1 rifles in a precision drill for third through fifth-grade students at Belvedere Elementary School Nov. 26.

After the performance, members of the drill team helped 45 fifth-graders plant trees and shrubs in Belvedere Park, an “outdoor classroom” adjoining the school. The plants were donated by the Fairfax County Park Authority.

This collaboration among the school, the Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team, and the Park Authority “represents a strong commitment to the environment and to the community,” says Belvedere librarian Pat Gualtieri. The drill team will continue to work monthly with the students to clean up and maintain the park as part of their community service efforts.
