Ranger felt it was to celebrate veterans who defended our country
This week their school was able to have a blackhawk helicopter land on school property and the children were given the opportunity to get in and look around. They had an assembly in which local veterans talked to the students.
Earlier in the 9 weeks, the students were presented with plastic dog tags as awards for reaching their reading (AR) goals. The boys have worn their dog tags daily.
Many children idolize "army" guys which in my children's view is all encompassing of all branches of military. My boys get out in the yard and play good guys and bad guys and the good military guys always win.
As a Mother, it is important for me to be honest with my children. I don't like to sugarcoat things for them. I want my boys to know why Veteran's Day is important and what it means to be a veteran.
To me, Veteran's Day means never forgetting and teaching our future generations to always remember.
Veterans have heard, seen, and lived through things we only see in the movies. Let's keep them in our thoughts and prayers. Always.
