Letter: Thanks to veterans

Dear Veterans,

Over the Veterans Day weekend, I was just thinking about how lucky I am to be free and have the life I have. I thought why? Why am I not scared of being bombed the next day or why is someone not trying to tear me away from my family. Then, I thought that it is because of the veterans that have served for my country, and everyday I am grateful for your service. On Veterans Day, our teacher reminded us of the special role our veterans play in America and I was inspired to write this letter on behalf of our school. Thank you for your service to our country. Everyone should be thankful to all of you who have fought in any war or have helped our country in any way. We are so grateful that we live in this glorious country and feel safe because of your commitment and love for our nation.
