There were smiles and plenty of thank you’s Friday when the Fairfield High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps dedicated the Getz Ready Room.
Veterans from Paradise Valley Estates, Fairfield-Suisun School District officials and the students admired the room, painted in blue with a patterned blue rug and blue-and-white furnishings.
On opposite walls were two framed World War II battle maps, prompting one guest to point to the one representing the beach at Normandy and say, “My uncle Paul went in right there.”
On a shelf, off to the side of the door, sits a shell from the beach at Normandy.
