Naval Recruiting District Michigan Commanding Officer Cmdr. Paul Gardner reads the classic children's story "The Sailor's Dog" to children at the Detroit Public Library's Skillman branch in Michigan on July 21, 2005. Sailors came to the library to read stories to local children and their families as a part of the "Navy Day" festivities in Detroit.
The Defense Department invites people to send an electronic postcard of this event.
I realize that some people may be bothered by this photo, but I think we should be celebrating any group that helps literacy along with read alouds.
