Looking for Some Veterans Day Freebies to Celebrate Veterans Day in Your Classroom?

Looking for Some Veterans Day Freebies to Celebrate Veterans Day in Your Classroom? I am very proud to be the wife of a retired Navy man! As a teacher it was always hard to move and start over, but he is so worth it. Any Freebies I could get from my files was a big help.

I am very proud to be the wife of a retired Navy man! 
Here he is, fresh out of Boot Camp many, many moons ago! ;)

He is now retired from the Navy and Government Contract work, but I still appreciated every single day he spent defending this great country for 26 years.  

Growing up in a large military town, many of my teachers were retired military. My husband did not become a teacher, but is now an inspector for the State of Florida. I really love to see the pride and education that our military members bring to a community. As a thank you for all the retired military who are now teachers and for their wives and family, I have some Forever Freebies for your files.
