We loved having our veteran friends and relatives visit our school so that we could honor them. We also honored veterans who have passed away as well as those currently serving. We learned more about their service and the meaning of Veterans Day. We were able to sing "Thank You Military" to our honored guests and wave flags to show our appreciation. We made posters to decorate the halls and lined the sidewalks with American flags as part of our celebration. Some of them were able to stay after the assembly and go to individual classes to talk with them about their service.
One of our special veterans said that he felt very loved and that it may have been one of the best days of his life.
