  Our Great Veterans

by Tyler L.

Mrs. Rabb's Sixth Grade Class

The contributions that our Veterans made are many.  One of the contributions that our Veterans made was to leave their families and travel to a strange, unfriendly land.  They slept on the ground and in all kinds of weather.  They made many sacrifices in order for us to have the freedom to walk and talk today.

Our men and women are putting their lives in danger today so that we can still have the freedom we all enjoy and take for granted.  They give protection in order that our great nation is still the home of the brave and the free.

We can honestly say that our Veterans don't know the word "I" as we sometimes prey on. They always put everything and everyone else first before the word "I" . They even carry on the great quest even when war is not going on. To the greatest men and women in our nation I salute you!
