HERKIMER Ė Air National Guard Master Sgt. Timothy Bouska recently visited Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES special programs students in teacher Roseann Norodís class to talk about important character traits such as duty and respect.

Bouska emphasized strong character traits and citizenship, and he answered questions about self-discipline, respect for self and others, responsibility and teamwork. He explained the salute, appropriate eye contact, handshakes, showing compassion for others and the need to follow directions and always work to be our best.

The visit took place on Nov. 24 at the Herkimer BOCES Remington Educational Complex in Ilion. The activity was planned in collaboration with Ann Margaret Bouska, a speech language pathologist working with the class.

Timothy Bouska, who is a member of the Air National Guard 109th Wing stationed in Scotia, N.Y., also talked about how he regularly travels to the north and south poles and transports supplies and other military members to and from the Antarctic McMurdo Station.

The master sergeantís presentation went longer than planned due to student enthusiasm Ė with conversations about topics such as life in the Antarctic and special airplanes with skis for landing in the snow. Students also asked many questions about procedures, equipment and experiences of being in the military.
