U.S. Army Okinawa Single Soldiers support the English Program
The U.S. Army Okinawa Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS) Program supported the Sobe Summer School English Program on July 30. The U.S. Army has supported this English program for over 10 years. SPC Garron Rogers-Malloy from the 78th Signal Battalion taught the alphabet and how to write their names in English. 12 students were in attendance, ranging from 1st to 6th graders, all of whom live in nearby Sobe district. After learning the alphabet, they played an alphabet game called "POP", in which they learned new words and phrases in English. Students had a good time and promised to come back for future classes.
