Veteran's Day, by Caleb J. Gomez, 12 years old
My Papa, Victor Adele was a Marine. He served our country in Vietnam.
Now he is a volunteer at my Troop 93 meetings and outings. He has taught me how I can serve my community and my country by being the best Boy Scout of America.
My Papa says, I can be like a Marine even if I' am only 12 years old by always doing my best, and never giving up when I have trouble putting up my tent, tying my knots, and calling out color-guard commands, and folding the flag correctly in a triangle shape and going on hard hikes.
I want to wish my Papa and all the people who have served in the wars a happy Veterans day.
