Students Involved in Military Tributes, Parades and Events – Over the Years…

Service of Supply is not just a business.  It’s a personal collection, a way to honor our nation’s military veterans, and a vehicle for getting students involved in our patriotic history.  Bryan Dibble collects uniforms of all eras and puts them to use for Veterans Day, demonstrations, living history displays, and much more.  Students from our city eagerly volunteer to represent the military men and women of the past.  Our group is called SERVE – Students Engaged in Re-creating Veteran’s Experiences.  SERVE teaches students about the period of time they are representing.  We meet veterans at the VFW and learn more about what they experienced in the service.  Students who are wearing uniforms also are called upon to teach others, especially younger kids, what that uniform represents and who the people were called up to serve at that time in American history.  Since the late 1990s, hundreds of students have worn the uniforms and “walked a step in their shoes.”
