Veteran’s Day Resources

In a time of so many Hallmark holidays, I find it especially important to remember holidays of true importance.  As I start to reflect on this Veteran’s Day, I say a special prayer of thanksgiving for my brother, my father, my uncles, my grandfathers, several friends who served, and for my father-in-law who was killed in action.  For those who served and continue to serve, I say thanks.

Here are some resources I found as I look for resources to use with my students.
