|Veterans Day Bulletin Board on 11-11-11|
Then we wrote about what Veterans Day is For. We wrote about soldiers who are always protecting America around the world. I want the students to really remember how each branch of the military protects us in different ways; the Air Force with planes and helicopters, the Navy with ships and aircraft carriers and submarines, the Coast Guard with boats and divers, and the Army and Marines on the front lines of battle. We will talk about the elite Navy Seals and Special Forces and how tough and brave they are.

the kids a video song from Tim McGraw honoring fallen soldiers in the line of duty called "If You're Reading This". It shows my students the sad part of the job of protecting people, and how some give the ultimate sacrifice, their lives in defense of America. That's why we honor them at Veteran's Day.
