Last Thursday, I had the honor of speaking to a gymnasium packed full of first through sixth grade students. It was the first time I’ve been asked to speak at a Veterans Day event since leaving the military almost ten years ago. I was impressed and humbled by how engaged the students were, all the way down to the first graders.
The sixth grade project was a slide show where students took pictures with vets that were friends or family members. If they didn’t know any, they took to the streets and went door to door to find people who had served. This not only spread awareness and recognition for the vets, but proved to the kids that there are more vets among them than they may have previously thought.
I was moved by the experience and very encouraged by seeing the way the kids honored our country’s veterans. It convinced me that the storied traditions of our veterans and their service will not be forgotten.
