Veterans Day

Click Here for books about
Veteran's Day
Veterans Day:
A day to reflect
on the selfless service
of brave men and women
who chose to defend this great nation,
who risk their lives,
who protect the freedoms
that Americans cherish. 

Veterans are proud of the service
they give to their country.
A simple thank you
will put a smile on their faces.

I remember the little paper red poppies we used to wear on Veteran’s Day.  Do people still do that?
