Did your kids have school today? Did you have school on Veteran's Day when you were a kid?

We had school on Veterans Day when I was a kid and we had an assembly or program where different veterans would come in and speak. I always thought it was interesting to hear some of their stories.
Now kids stay home and watch tv or play video games instead.

  • Early Release Day today. I just asked my son... They didn't even talk about it. I guess I will tonight when I help him with his school work.

  • Yes, and yes. I don't remember if we had anything special when I was a kid, but our school has local veterans come in and talk to the kids, and most of the day is centered around learning different stuff pertaining to Veterans Day.
