This tip dovetails with the Veteran's Day letters to the VFW. I have my primary classes write letters and draw pictures. Then I drop them off at the nearest Veteran's Administration hospital. The staff at the hospital places a letter and picture on the breakfast or dinner trays of patients. I have had 5 or 6 classes from my school participate in this project. The kids are so excited to know that 'real' veterans are going to see their letters and pictures!
