“We celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.”

This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.”-military.com

First grade honored Veterans Day with a trip to the cemetery to make rubbings of plaques dedicated to those who died serving our country. We are so grateful for all those who have fought for our individual rights and freedoms.

Día del Veterano

“Celebramos y honramos a los veteranos de América por su patriotismo, su amor a la patria y su voluntad de servir y sacrificarse por el bien común”. Esta festividad comenzó como un día para reflexionar sobre el heroísmo de los que murieron al servicio de nuestro país y se llamó originalmente Día del Armisticio. Cayó en el 11 de noviembre porque es el aniversario de la firma del Armisticio que puso fin a la Primera Guerra Mundial. Sin embargo, en 1954, el día festivo se cambió a “Día de los Veteranos” para tener en cuenta a todos los veteranos de odas las guerras”. El primer grado honró el Día de los Veteranos con un viaje al cementerio para hacer borradores de las placas dedicadas a los que murieron sirviendo a nuestro país. Estamos muy agradecidos por todos aquellos que han luchado por nuestros derechos y libertades individuales.
