Howard Burger was a real American hero.He served our country in WWII but he also served our country by truly caring about the people he came in contact with. I met him through a mutual friend when he visited Moraine Meadows Elementary where I taught. He was attending a Veteran's Appreciation celebration and was most gracious and appreciative of the honor of being recognized. Afterwards he came and visited my first graders and had the patience and caring to really listen to their stories about veterans they knew. He then shared with them stories of his time in the military but also shared how important it was for them to learn as much as possible, to read as much as possible and to cooperate with their teachers. He encouraged respect, hard work and caring by demonstrating it to my students. It became a tradition for him to visit my room each year after the program and I was always happy to see this wonderful man. Moraine Meadows closed in 2010 and I never saw Mr. Burger again. He was a treasure and will be missed by all who knew him. The world was a better place while Howard Burger was a part of it.
