“Just 4 Kids” Program November 1, 2-4 pm

What do stop signs, the Statue of Liberty and the American flag have in common? Find out at the Women’s Memorial in November. Learn about our use of symbols in everyday life and in the military. Experience a new side of patriotism as we examine the creation and changes in the American flag and how these changes reflect our nation and its growth. Discuss other national symbols of patriotism, including our five military service flags, and the feelings they evoke. Create your own flag using colors, shapes and textures and share its meaning!

Present Arms is one in a series of two-hour special educational “Just 4 Kids” programs hosted by the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation. Covering a variety of topics and involving various activities, the series is designed to familiarize attendees with the responsibilities of citizenship, American history, patriotism and women’s rich heritage of service. All events are open to the public and run from 2 to 4 pm at the Women’s Memorial. The cost is $2 per student per program and children must be accompanied by an adult (adult companions are free). For more information or to make a reservation, call Leigh Anne McNamara at 800-222-2294 or 703-533-1155.
