This game works well for any patriotic holiday! If you have projection capabilities, you will find this easy to make in only minutes for using in programs like PowerPoint.

The United States has several branches of military which are honored on days like Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and Independence Day.

For this game, you will use the following: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard.
