The following are letters of gratitude to veterans from Nickie Farnsworth’s fifth-grade class at Jeremy Ranch Elementary School. Veterans of Utah,

I would like to thank all of you. I want you to know how much we appreciate you. Every day I think how many people are dying just trying to help us and others.

Thank you for not giving up and always remember we’re there for you. Sincerely, Bradlee Lewis Hello Veterans,

Thank you so much for giving your lives up for this country. I wouldn’t be brave enough to leave my family and go to war. But you were.

You are great role models for everybody in the world. You are very brave people. Thank you, Heather Dearden Hello Friend, My name is Shaw. My great-grandpa was a major in the Army. I would just like to thank you for your service. Shaw Irwin Dear Patriots,

I thank you for fighting for our freedom. You left your home to go fight for us.

I am glad you’re on our side. I know I wouldn’t leave my home. I think that’s brave of you. Thank you, Josh Baker Hello Patriot,

Thank you for serving our country. Without men and women like you guys, our streets could be filled with enemy soldiers.

I am glad to have you as our soldiers, and without you, our towns could be war zones. Thank you. Sincerely, Caden Damiano Dear Friends,
