Veteran’s Day – November 11th

Hello Christian Friends & Homeschoolers,

Happy Veteran’s Day! Did anyone in your family ever serve in the military? Do you know any veterans of war? I do. My father served during the time of the Korean War. I am very proud of him.

I remember celebrating Veteran’s Day in elementary school. We began the day by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. I remember those beautiful words as if I were in the classroom again.The words are: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Very inspiring!

Our teacher gave each of us a picture of a soldier to color. On the board the teacher wrote the words “Veteran’s Day”. We copied the words “Veteran’s Day”and wrote them just below our picture. Then the teacher hung our pictures up in the classroom. We were so proud of how we celebrated Veteran’s Day.

What will you be doing to celebrate Veteran’s Day? Will you say a prayer of thanks to God for those who have fought for our country? I will be saying a prayer of thanks to God for those who gave their lives to make our country free.

There will be school assemblies and parades in many of our communities as they remember our veterans of war. Detroit, Chicago, New York, Salt Lake, and New Boston are just a few of the larger cities that will be hosting Veteran’s Day events.

Go out and celebrate this special day by yourself, or with your family and friends. Have fun. Sometimes there will be free admission to a museum on this day. Let’s remember the great sacrifices of our soldiers on Veteran’s Day.
