Thank you to Austin for this Veteran's Day post. I couldn't have said it better, so I just used the post from his Reading Workshop student blog.
Many people may already know this but Veteran's Day is on Friday, 11/11/11. At my school we are going to have an assembly to honor them for their service to our country. I know a lot of people who were in the armed forces. More than I can name and count have been in the air force on my grandma’s side in the Lallier family.
My grandpa is going to be at the assembly. He was in the army in Vietnam. I think it was 5 or more people on my grandma’s side who were in the armed forces. Veteran's Day is a day to honor people who have died or served or still serve in the armed forces. So don’t forget to honor them and their service to our country.
