Veterans Day

11/5/2010

 
This week will be the same as last week -- you will respond to the question by making a new post on the blog page of your website.  Make sure and read other people's blogs this week to see what they wrote!

This week we have a day off of school on Thursday to honor our veterans.  The holiday was first celebrated on November 11, 1919 to celebrate the end of WWI the previous year, and to honor the men that had fought in that war.

Question: Why is it still important today that we honor the veterans that serve our country?

If you're not sure how to answer this one, ask someone in your family! It's a sure bet that someone has a story to share with you.

Normal rules:

**must be at least 50 words
**use school appropriate language
**include correct usage of capitals and periods

Your response is due by Thursday, 11/11 (Yes, even though there is No School).
