    In memory of the soldiers of Europe and her Empires, the US and other nations who died needlesly in a war that should have never been.

    A very somber Veterans Day here in my city as the first bronze name plaques from the Middle East conflict were added to our war memorial.


    To my special vet..Semper Fi my man!

    In one hour from now, we'll be assembling at the Legion. I'll be a flag-bearer in the Remembrance Day parade.
    Those who serve, and those who have served in the past... we salute you.

    I just held my own moment of silence at 11 AM.

    Especially let's remember those whose deaths would be denied "meaning" by some historians or commentators because the wars in which they died were the result of some political theory which has been exploded. But the heroic death of a soldier can never be reduced to the purposes of a politician. Peace to you and remembrance, my brothers!

    Echo.
    When I had no prospects in my life, I actually applied to go to Viet Nam (as a fighter pilot). I was rejected because, although the US draughted their own right out of the crib, they wouldn't take a 17 year-old Canuk because our age of majority was 18. Once I realized what that entire 'war' was about, I became extremely relieved that I wasn't involved. That does not in any way detract from the (frequently involuntary) sacrifice made by those who died or were incapacitated, or who simply live with horrible memories.
    My salutation includes those.

    This is a Vietnam era song by Kris Kristopherson which seems completely appropriate for the current war.

    "Good Christian Soldier"
    Thanks to the soldiers who have fought and died, thanks to the soldier who has fought and survied, thanks to all who have served.

    Remembrance Day is the most important holiday of the year IMO.

    To all the Canadians and others who gave their tomorrows for my todays, I thank you.

    The torch will indeed be held high.

    Here is a picture of my father-in-law that just came out in a publication honoring veterans. I knew that he had served in SE Asia in WWII, but there was more that he didn't tell me about. He was in the American Liaison Personnel - the kind of job that might find you accompanying Chinese troops in pursuit of Japanese forces - similar to in-country duties of Special Forces today in Afghanistan and elsewhere. He served in India, Burma, and China.
