November 11th is Veterans Day in the U.S. Veterans Day honors all American soldiers. Soldiers protect the U.S. Sometimes they have to fight. Sadly sometimes they die for their country. This little boy is placing American flags on the graves of soldiers. This is a tradition for Veterans Day. Americans say, “Thank you to the soldiers serving now. Thank you to the veterans (past soldiers). Thank you to the dead soldiers. You gave your life. We remember you.”
