  • Recommended November 12, 2014 - I want to thank Shumyah for a very nice Veterans Day card which I received at the Applebee's today. I don't know whose class she is in but if someone can thank her for me, I would appreciate it. Thanks for thinking about all the veterans on this day Joseph Graumann - Posted by Parent
