Today is November 11th and it is Veterans Day. A veteran is a former member of the armed services or military. Branches of the military include the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, and veterans may have served during times of war or peace.
Perhaps a member of your family is currently serving in the military. Or maybe a grandfather, aunt or distant cousin is retired from the armed forces. Or maybe you have a teacher who has served in the National Guard, like Ms. Burriss.
We know that it is a sacrifice, as they leave their families to serve our country to protect our freedoms. So To all veterans of all branches: Thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all. In short, thank you for your service! To all those who have served, and those who continue to serve… Happy Veterans Day!
Please watch the short video below created by Ms. Burriss to honor some of our student's family members who have served or are serving in the military.
