Veterans day

I accidentally forgot to post about Veterans  day but ..... I'll  tell you about it .It was really fun. We put flags on Veterans' graves and took old flags off & put new ones on if they already had a flag but it was tattered. Afterwards, we ate hot dogs and chili at the VFW Hall with my Clover Kid 4-H group.

  • Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11.
  • It is a federal holiday to honor those who have served in the military known as veterans.
  • Why is it celebrated on the 11th? Because it celebrates the end of fighting in WW1.
  • Veterans Day is also known as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day.
  • I got a lot of neat worksheets and this information at
