In honor of Veterans Day during the month of November, a resident of the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home and a veteran of the United States Army visited the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center at the College of Southern Maryland as a “Celebrity Reader.” Veteran William Campbell served in the United States Army from 1949-1973 in the Military Police and over the course of his tour of duty was awarded the Bronze Star, Meritorious service medal, good conduct medal and the Army commendation. Campbell read from the children’s picture book written by Meghan McCain titled, “My Dad, John McCain.” Following the story the children asked Campbell questions about his time in the service and presented him with a thank you card for visiting.
