The Greater Niagara Newspapers recently ran an awesome story about a Roy-Hart graduate who has been defending our country and talking about it...

Army Spc. Brittany Cooper has some unusual show-and-tell items, as seen when she visited Royalton-Hartland Elementary School on Friday.

The 2008 Roy-Hart graduate spoke to fourth-graders about her experience in the military. Along with her stories and pictures, Cooper also brought some memorabilia with her, such as her helmet and vest. She also brought some items she uses for investigations as an officer with the Military Police.

Cooper has met with Roy-Hart students in the past, most recently in February. Now stationed at Fort Drum in Jefferson County, Cooper usually comes home for holidays. She served from July 2009 until July 2010 in Iraq.

Check out the rest of the article online. It discusses some of the things she's seen overseas:
