First-grader Miguel Tejada shakes hands with state trooper Tim Sova, an Iraq War veteran, as Cape Ann Veterans Services Director Adam Curcuru and Miguel's classmate Willa Whitcher, left, look on Thursday at West Parish Elementary School. Sova, who served two tours with the Marines in Iraq, including the invasion, has a daughter, Aibhilin, at West Parish. He is one of a group of local veterans who visited Gloucester public elementary schools this week to read a story and talk to children about the military and about Veteran's Day.
