Mercy High School freshmen Dian Gigliotti, left, and Jo Anne Glynn with Sister Mary Theodore sort through primers to send to Sgt. David Lancaster at the Thirty-eight Aerospace Recovery Squadron near Da Nang, Vietnam. “I read about 
Sgt. Lancaster teaching children 
to speak and read English. He’s not even a teacher, 
just a person doing his part to help. 
I thought the least 
I could do would 
be to gather a 
few books for 
him to use.” 
— Sister Mary Theodore
