Pine Tree Academy celebrates Veterans Day with a pop of color and patriotism once again! This 11th, PTA’s students showed off posters, dressed in the traditional red white and blue, and cheered for brave men and women who have served our country with their perseverance and labor. Veterans day, originally Armistice Day, marks the end of WW1. It is not to be confused with Memorial Day because the 11th specifically honors the living and the dead Americans who served their country, emphasizing respect to the living. Of living Veterans, roughly 19 million have served in at least one war and deserve recognition for their bravery. That is exactly why Pine Tree’s students come to school on the 11th - to learn about the brave soldiers and all they've sacrificed.
