Vyazniki Russia 20/03/2015 Dear friend My name is Nastya. I am 11. I study at school. My favourite subject is History and I like our History teacher too. Not long ago she asked us to prepare a report about Russian War veterans. So I decided to tell about my great grandfather. His name is Cherkasov Nikolay Sergeevich. He went to the front when he was only 17. He took part in the battle for Konigsberg, for which he was awarded the medal "For the capture of Königsberg". After the victory my great granddad was sent to the far East to participate in the war with Japan. There he was awarded the medal "For victory over Japan", the order of ” The Red Star” and the order of ”The Great Patriotic war". During the war he was wounded three times in the head and twice in the leg. I am very proud of him and never want the war happen again. And are your great grandparents war veterans? Best wishes, Nastya.
