Paying tribute to veterans who are responsible for making the United States of America a stable country that it is, is something that all US citizens should do. Since Veterans Day is a national holiday, it only goes to show how important this day was a day that marked the end of World War 1.
Having established that it is important to celebrate this day to glorify the many veterans that made it possible to make the USA as amazing as it is, it is time to teach children this too. Many schools around the country teach their students the importance of honoring people (veterans) and the importance of the day. One exercise that schools perform is getting their students to write Veterans Day letters to the people who were responsible for bringing the Great War to an end. In it, they are taught to appreciate them and tell them how lucky they are to be born in a country that is great because of their sacrifices.
To see how you can get your students to write a Veterans Day letter, have a look at the following sample:
Veterans Day Letter from Students
We have been learning the sacrifices that you have made and the immense effort you put into making the United States of America the great country that it is. On this Veterans Day, we would like to thank you for your immense contribution to our country, a place that we can now call our own, but would not have been able to have it not been for your sacrifices.
Many of us here have family in the armed forces and realize fully how difficult it can be to live away from worldly pleasures, and family, and serve in a capacity that is often not safe. And we appreciate the fact that you dare to do what is right for the country, at the cost of your comfort and safety. Your commitment to the nation has amazed us to the point that we want to know more about what your life has been like. We know that without our veterans, we would not have the rights or freedom that we enjoy now, and would like to thank you for everything that you have done to make sure that we live comfortable lives.
On this special day, we salute you for your bravery and contribution.
