We observe Veterans Day to honor those people, past and present, who serve in our armed forces. Veteran’s Day coincides with Armistice Day which commemorates the end of the 1st World War. Our military protects our freedom and honors our obligation to those who “dream of living free”. Please take a moment with your family to remember our veterans this Veterans Day.
Here are some things you can do with your family:
- Fly your flag
- Draw a picture about Veteran’s Day
- Make a card to thank veterans. You can send your card to a local VA Medical Center
- Ask your teacher to invite veterans to your classroom. You can learn a lot from your guests.
- Have your school make a poster with the names of relatives and friends who are veteran’s.
