Students bond with Marine
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Marine Sgt. Andrew Valora walks towards students putting on a surprise party for him at Copper Creek Elementary School last week. The students "adopted" Valora and his squadron while they were deployed in Afghanistan during their last tour. He promised he would stop by and say thanks as soon as he returned home.
