We took time today to honor and respect all of the men & women who serve or have served in the US Armed Forces to protect our great country. As a special way to honor our veterans, Grace painted several American flags. Grace made one flag for Poppy (who served in Vietnam), one flag for Uncle Steve (who currently serves in the Reserves), and several flags for service men or women who are currently serving overseas. Grace will proudly mail her flags overseas tomorrow morning.
I don't think it is ever too early to teach our children to respect the sacrifice that our veterans have made. Here is a great way for older children to write to one of our soldiers:
To all who have served out country and to those who are currently serving our country, we THANK YOU. Your courage, service, and sacrifice is not forgotten.
