This idea comes from Bethany Lutheran Church in Port Orchard, WA. They plan on setting up a display, like the one pictured, on Veterans Day. Congregational members will be able to take a toy soldier home and are encouraged to place it in a highly visible spot. Each time they see the toy soldier, it will serve as a reminder to pray for our men and women who are serving our country.
Suggestions where to buy the toy soldiers are:
The Dollar store, Toys R Us, or Amazon.
