Retired Army Sgt. Julie Smith observed Veteran’s Day Friday with an appearance at Village Books, where she read stories and helped make cards to send to troops overseas.
Smith, a preschool teacher, said teaching the children about veterans is a valuable life lesson – that veterans are regular people who answered the call to serve the country.
“They can be teachers like I am, or doctors or lawyers,” Smith said. “Being in the military there is an array of jobs to do.”
