Website For Kids Honors Veteran’s Day

In 1918 when what became Veteran’s Day was first observed as Armistice Day marking an official end to World War I, computers and the internet did not exist.

Today kids are honoring Veteran’s Day in a high tech way on Meet Me at the Corner, a virtual field trip website.

The episode takes place at Colorado Springs Memorial Park. Hannah, an 8 year old correspondent for the website, interviews a World War II veteran named Robert Williams.

The war veteran discussions his military career and the different jobs he held in the service along with what he believes are the characteristics of a good solider.
