Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Do you know the difference?
Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring those who died serving their country.
On a Veterans Day we thank and honor those who served in the military. Veterans Day is observed on November 11th of each year. This day used to be called Armistice Day.
What can you do on Veterans Day?
* Draw a picture about Veterans Day
* Make a card to thank veterans. You can send your card to a local VA Medical Center.
* Ask your teacher to invite veterans to your classroom. You can learn a lot from your guests!
* Have your school make a poster with the names (and pictures) of relatives and friends who are veterans.
