Veterans day to some people is just another day they don’t have to go to school.To others it’s an emotional roller coaster were they remember their loved ones.

 

To many family members it’s more than a holiday. It’s a very emotional day they gather together not to mourn, but to appreciate the bravery of those men and women.      

 

Veterans day gives families the chance to honor past and present veterans. It’s a day to thank people who put there life on the line to protect their country. Soldiers fight, so we don’t have to, some do it straight out of high school! Imagine an 18 year old kid risking their young life for what they believe in.

 

That’s why we celebrate veterans day. To thank the millions who risk, and lose their lives for their country
