Just copy the questions into your comment and below each question write your answer. I hope that you have fun! Remember to show your gratitude to any veteran that you meet! Each one was willing to give their very lives so that we could be free. Because there have been men and women such as these, we have the important freedom of religion. Imagine if we couldn't worship God freely like so many other people are faced with. What if whenever we prayed or went to church there was a danger of being caught and thrown in jail or martyred? I am so thankful to the many soldiers who have given their lives and were willing to give their lives for us! Most of all, thank you to the veterans in my community. Especially to my dad. Dad, thank you so much for serving America and helping to preserve our freedom!
