What to Do About Veteran's Day?

I'm trying to do better about creating meaningful traditions for our family this year.  It's actually been a work in process for a few years, but this year I'm making a valiant push (mostly).  I have a binder with loose-leaf pages labeled for the holidays we do, or want to, celebrate so I can jot down the traditions we have or the traditions we're creating for each one.  And typical of me, it isn't until it is upon us that I get around to seeking out ideas.

What did Google provide me with this time (in no particular order)?

I think we will try to say a prayer of thanks for our Veterans, and those that are currently serving, around the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  They are in our regular prayers, but there is power in specific prayer--for those praying, and for those the prayer is over.  We'll also hang our flag.  I have the address for a friend's daughter serving in Afghanistan--see about writing her a note.  Though I'd also like to see if maybe we can start a project to collect stories of Service from our relatives.
