Veteran’s Day Essay
By: Emma Wolfe
Do you ever wonder who the bravest people are? Do you ever wonder if there are actual superheroes? The answer is the VETERANS, of course! But…what is a veteran? A veteran is a man or woman who once served in the Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or the Army. What did veterans do for us?
Veterans stood up for their families, friends and even people they’ve never met face-to-face. They suffered losses of other veteran’s, they gave up time with their families. Yet they fought for their home, their biggest family, the United States of America.
Veterans are a part of who we are. There are 300,000 homeless veterans, and 1.4 million are at risk. One veteran passes every two hours, we can’t have that happen. We have to repay the favor for the people who fought for us. We’re letting our heroes down, let’s bring them back up. NOW. Thank our veterans and help one in need. Contact a trustworthy website to lend a helping hand. Thank you for our freedom, veterans!
