Service ribbons are small ribbons that are adhered to metal bars and are often attached to the jackets of people who have previously served, or are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. They are generally worn in place of medals for a variety of heroic deeds and services that a military officer accomplished while serving his or her country. On holidays such as Veterans Day, military personnel will oftentimes wear their ribbons to display their accomplishments. Using construction paper, your child will create this service ribbons project in celebration of Veterans Day. The finished craft will serve as a cover to a fictional short story he will write about a member of the U.S. military who was awarded the service ribbons.
