“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!”
This Friday, 11/11, as the nation celebrates the men and women who have fought for the United States, reach out to your mentee and together learn about the history and significance of Veterans Day. Use this upcoming week with your mentee to reflect on the sacrifices made by past and current service members and what your mentee can do for those who have put their life on the line.
Have your student make individual notes or thank you cards to be sent to the nearest Veterans Affairs medical center, or state Veterans home. Better yet, have your student get their classmates involved! Find your local facilities at www.va.gov/health/ !
