Poland Celebrates Independence Day
Story and photo by Lt Cdr Greg Lyko
Poland celebrated its Independence Day, 11 November. Ninety-five years ago, after
years of being out off the map of Europe, Poland regained sovereignty. The Polish
JFCBS community celebrated this day in a very subtle and poetic way.
I was able to download coursework and
presentations, enabling me to complete
assignments in non-traditional settings .”
