Veteran’s Day

On November 11, 2009, America celebrated Veteran’s Day. Veterans Day is when America honors military veterans. The past several Veteran’s Days have meant a lot to Americans, because we have had so many soldiers fighting in wars. Many lives have been touched by the war we’re in, because a lot of people are related to soldiers or know a soldier that has fought in the war.

Lyndon State College hosted an event on Veteran’s Day to honor soldiers. They did this by having a veteran speak at the event, and have the college chorus sing a song at the event. Not many people attended the event which was unfortunate, and that kind of symbolized how many people don’t recognize the holiday. A lot of older people celebrate the holiday, but a lot of younger people don’t. More people should celebrate this holiday because soldiers do a lot for our country. Soldiers risk their lives everyday when their fighting in a war. They protect our country and our country’s rights. Our country should do a lot more about recognizing Veteran’s Day because soldiers don’t get enough thanks for what they do.
