Veteran’s Day Friday!

What is Veteran’s Day and why do we celebrate it?

I’m sure that you already knew that we have a 3-day weekend coming up, but did you know why?

This Friday, and every year on November 11th, Americans observe Veteran’s Day.

A Veteran, also known as a “Vet”, is a person who has served in the military.

In 1954, this federal holiday was changed from “Armistice” to “Veterans” Day.

  1. Place a small flag on every veteran’s grave. This is an annual tradition for many scout troops. 
  1. If you personally know a veteran, you can thank them for their service! 
  1. If you’re not close to a veteran, write a thank-you card and drop it off at a VA hospital. If you’re not in time for this Veterans Day, that’s fine; a thoughtful card is appreciated any time. 

Enjoy your day off this Friday and remember to thank a Veteran!
