Editor’s note: After discussing the important role that veterans play in our lives, students in Kerry Rains’ 4th grade class at St. Mary’s School wanted to thank local veterans. Working together in small groups they wrote the following letters:


In our class today, we discussed what Veterans Day is about.


We want to thank our veterans for what they’ve done. It is really nice of you to fight for us.


It makes us feel good to know that someone is willing to give up their life for the people of the U.S.A.. We thank our veterans who suffered in bad weather, but didn’t give up for our freedom. Thank you veterans.
