Show military servicemen and women appreciation with this set of 3 creative greeting cards for Veterans Day.

Printable Greeting Cards for Veterans

Veterans Day is nearing this year; why not make something special to give to the veterans and military personnel in your school community. With these cards, students will be able to create a patriotic holiday card to give to a family member or friend who is or has served in the United States Armed Forces.

Better yet, why not make cards for those veterans in your community who often go unrecognized on Veterans Day. Sometimes a simple gesture is enough to bring a smile to their face.

Where to Send Student Cards for Veterans

Not sure where to send the cards? These organizations can help connect your classroom’s cards to veterans or members of the military:

Print the greeting cards single-sided for older students or double-sided for younger students. We have included primary lined writing paper that younger students can use to write a thank you note.
