We Want to Thank Our Veterans

Forums: 

My name is Jennifer Yeager and I am a special education teacher in Chester, NJ. My students are learning about Veterans day and why it is so important. I could not find an email address so that they could send letters to all the amazing people who have helped make our lives so amazing so my last option was to post on here. I know the men and women who have served our country have been through so much and I can only help these letters put a smile on if only for a minute.

My students will be replying in response to my post!

Thank you for all that you do!
