ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) National Office. PVA's staff works hard to prepare for Veterans Day. A thousand things must be done, lots of meetings and planning take place, and, as usual, the plans never seem to go like they are supposed to. PVA held an essay contest for kids in grades 4-6. The theme was "Veterans Day," and it drew more than 800 applications. The winner would receive a trip to Washington D.C., attend the Veterans Day celebrations, and read his or her essay at the Veterans Day reception at the PVA National Office. The winner was Holt Mica, an 8-year-old boy from Texas.
