The Military, diy U.S. Army Keychains

diy US Army keychains

Veterans Day is November 11.  It is a day dedicated to honoring the military men and women who have served and defended our country.  We are truly grateful for all that they have done.

I came upon these U.S. Army patches at a local vintage/antique store.  They were once a part of the uniforms that have since retired.  The slight fading, threads unraveling and the wear and tear on these patches are reminders of where they came from.  I brought them home and decided to reuse and repurpose them as keychains.  If you’re looking to make this project, check the local thrift/antique stores and the Army Surplus stores for the materials. These U.S. Army keychains are a great way to keep the military men and women in our thoughts and prayers.  It’s also a wonderful way to show our support.  The kids will enjoy making these with you, and at the same time what a great opportunity it would be to share and have conversations about Veterans Day, the military and the history of our nation.
