In order to complete my challenge I chose to help organize our community Veteran’s Day program. Every year our school puts on a program to honor our local veteran’s. This year, I really wanted to help. I volunteered to prepare breakfast for our veterans before the program. I helped make sausage, bacon, pancakes, hash browns, fruit, biscuits and gravy, and coffee. I also volunteered to help lead the program. I wrote a welcome speech and was able to present it in front all 800 people attending the program.

It was so amazing to be able to honor such brave men and women.

My time and effort was nothing compared to the time and effort that veteran’s have spent serving our country. By volunteering to help with the Veteran’s Day program, I learned how important it is to give back to others and how I can truly make an impact. I chose to help out because it was something so simple that meant a lot to veterans on their special day.
