What Veterans Day

Means to Me

To me, Veteran’s Day means to celebrate and thank our veteans, not only for everything they have done for us, but also for what they have done for their families not knowing if they will ever see them again Every veteran is very brave. They risk their lives to save our country, even though they miss their families, they still try their hardest to win and keep our country a free country. On Veterans Day we should take some time to think about everything they have done for our country and what they have done for all the people in it.

I think Veterans Day shouldn’t be just for one day, it should be every day because they deserve to have people in our country thanking them for what they have done. I’m sure no one knows what happened and what they had to go through and how many sacrifices they have made.

I’m very proud of all our veterans for what they have done and for how much risk and bravery

they have shown us as a country.

If you are a veteran you should be very proud of your self for all you have done, and realize how many people are proud of you. You are a veteran and are important to many people around you. The main thing I want you to know is the pride we all have because of your service, even though you may not realize it. What you have done for us makes a huge difference in all of our lives and you are the people I look up to. When I think about Veterans Day I think of how you made us a free country and I think of how many people left their families to fight for our country. You are leaders and role models, and we all look up to you for who you are, what you have done, and for how much you have changed our lives. Thank you!

My Favorite Veteran

My favorite veteran is my uncle, John Pfremmer. John has been serving for over 10 years. He has fought in the Gulf War and has left our country twice before that. A couple months ago John went to go guard a prison cell in Cuba. He left behind his bed, his shower, and his food just to help out our country. He will also be missing important events including his daughter’s birthday and Christmas.

Every day his wife and his daughter tear a piece of paper from the chain they made. This is to represent that it is one day closer until he will be home. Most people think Veterans Day is about the people who are figh .....
