Veterans' Day Teacher Resource Guide

I have been an advocate. In my case I recently read about the Department of Veteran Affair's "Veterans' Day Teacher Resource Guide" and passed it onto my son's principal.

I don't live in a military-city. Our nearest military installation is 30 minutes away and it is not a big one (it doesn't even have a commissary - aghast!) But I feel strongly that the children of this town understand what a Veteran is and the sacrifices he or she has made. I want them to know what November 11th, 'Veteran's Day' is all about.

So I sent a friendly email along with a link to the resource guide to the principal at my son's school. I hope that she will take action. I will also follow up with *E*'s teacher and see if there is anything that I can do in the class on that day; read a book, help with an activity, something to introduce our American Heroes (past and present) to the children.

I would encourage you to do the same. Send an email, write a letter, call your children's school. Let's not forget what Veteran's Day is all about, and let's teach our children what it is about too!
