Veterans Day Around the World

On Tuesday, November 11th we will have a day off school to honor our veterans. This holiday is a special day to honor all the brave men and women who served in the armed forces, like the army, navy, marines corps, air force, and coast guard. These people risked their lives to make sure the rest of us can enjoy the freedom we often take for granted.

Here’s a short video about how Veterans’ Day was started.
