Dear CSA families,
On Monday, November 11, we observe Veterans Day, honoring those who have served our country in the Armed Forces, including valued members of our Colorado SKIES Academy community, some of whom are are currently serving and some who are retired.
As President John F. Kennedy said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” On this Veterans Day, we hope you’ll join us in honoring those who served our country and commit to doing all you can to ensure that flame of freedom never goes out. Additionally, we encourage you to consider some of the following volunteer opportunities, or seek out ways to help right in your community.
