The Take a Veteran to School Day is typically organized around Veterans Day which is Nov. 11 this year. The goal is to give veterans a chance to tell their story and at the same time to allow school children to honor the veterans for their service.

Teachers can plan an event all year round according to the website. There’s also an offer to send 30 free Take a Veteran to School Day wristbands- while supplies last – if the teacher registers for the program.

The project is the brainchild of  the cable History Channel. Since it started in 2007, many veteran organizations have joined in to support it such as Got Your 6, Blue Star Families, and Team Rubicon.

In addition to setting up a registry, the Take a Veteran to School program offers curriculum guides for all grade levels from kindergarten through 12th grade and other teacher resources.

There’s also a Thank a Veteran at Work Day.
