Happy Veterans Day 2015!

indexHappy Veteran’s Day!

If you see a Veteran or an active service member today (or really, any day), thank them for their service to our country. Freedom was won for us by soldiers, and it is important to remember to thank the brave men and women who have put their lives on the line to ensure that we can still have the freedom we enjoy.

I’ve compiled a short list of children’s books that talk about Veteran’s Day and why it’s important. And if you have an interest in further supporting our troops: uso.org, Wounded Warrior Project, Disabled American Veterans, and Homes for Our Troops are just a few of the charities that help support veterans and active service members.

Their sacrifice is our gain; don’t let what they’ve done be forgotten.
