he Spanish Fork Legion Post 68 organized the Fifth Annual Freedom Walk for Spanish Fork and Salem fifth-grade students on May 10 and 11, 2022. Members from various branches of the military came and told stories to almost 1,350 fifth-grade students from13 schools over the past two days.
Salem fifth-grade students prepared in advance of the Freedom Walk by researching veterans and writing summaries of what they learned. Banners from each of the schools lined the walking path displaying the students’ summaries and creating a Wall of Honor. Many of these summaries were the students’ own family members.
