Meet A Veteran Day


Veterans Day is a little less than a month away, Words For Warriors is doing their part by holding Meet A Veteran Day at Janesville Union School on November 10th from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.  This will be an event where select students will get to ask questions of Veterans from the various Wars.  Words For Warriors is also supplying school curriculum for any teacher who would like it. The curriculum is from The History Channel event Take A Veteran To School Day.

The goal is to help educate students on who Veterans are, why they are important, and how to thank a Veteran. If anyone would like more information, please feel free to contact me. I am very excited about this major school event and will keep you all posted!

K, another cool thing. I still can't think of what to say when somebody say's "thank you."

today I had an older couple thank me for me service, and I said: "thank you for paying your taxes so I could go do that stuff."

CI- I'm just trying to do my best to honor and recognize those who do or have volunteer to fight for our Country.

And I'm glad to pay my taxes for you, now if you would only get what the government promised you with that tax money I'd be happier!
