Veterans throw away their medals - level 1
Britain starts to bomb Syria. Some people agree with this, but some people don’t. There is a group of veterans in the UK. The group’s name is “Veterans for Peace”. It has 169 members.
The veterans do not agree with the bombing. They protest in London. They talk about war. They say that it is a bad thing. The veterans do not want their medals anymore. They throw their medals away.
This is an emotional moment for the veterans.
Difficult words: agree (to think that it is good to do something), veteran (an ex-soldier), peace (when there is no war or fighting), medal (a fancy piece of metal which is given to a soldier).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
