Veterans Day by Katie Grace
On the 11th month, the 11th day, the 11th hour in 1918, that was the end of WWI and it was also when America signed a peace treaty. Today, we went outside and watched the Veterans Day program. Two of my friends got the head coach for the Veterans breakfast. We sang the National Anthem. We had all of the branches of the Armed Services there, including people from the Marine Corps, the Navy, the Army, the Coast Guard and the Air Force. Then they had the gun firing where a trumpeter played Taps and then seven men with guns fired their guns three times for a 21 gun salute. Then we came inside and Mrs. Brittain had a slide show about all Veterans Day.
Thank you Stuart for serving our country!
