Soldiers from the 202nd Military Intelligence Battalion visited August Prep second-graders Wednesday morning to thank them for letters the children have been sending to them in Afghanistan.

The soldiers, including Capt. Justin Mann, talked to the children about their mission and the equipment they use, and then allowed them to check out their body armor and military vehicles.
