Corey Kamarainen, a Cottage Lake Elementary sixth-grader, sets a notecard denoting one of the 1,050 men and women from Washington state who lost their lives in the Vietnam War during recent Veteran's Day observances. Kamarainen, and the rest of teacher Mark Robertson's class, used the Internet to find the names. The project began as a math assignment to make numbers mean something.
