Lest We Forget

70 posts in this topic

Both my grandfathers fought in WWII. And although neither were perfect human beings, my love and respect for them will never wane. For they fought as bravely and fiercely for their country, as they would for their families.

To all veterans living and departed, thank you for everything you gave for our country. We may not always show it, but rest assured, we will never forget it.

My dad fought in the Gulf war.. he was in the Military for 25 years.. the only thing that pisses me off about Nov 11 is that we dont honor our vets EVERY day like we do on that day.

Being English this is as important to us as anyone else, I don't know how familiar everyone is with European 'Soccer' but FIFA have actually ban the English national team from wearing Poppies on their shirts for the friendly against Spain this friday......I personally think it is disgusting and there is talk of England doing it anyway!

I think everyone should wear a poppy personally, even if you aren't respecting one specific side, just those who have given their lives for what they believe in.

Heroes don't wear capes, they don't score goals, and they don't make speaches. Heroes don't brag, boast, and seldom acknowlege their accomplishments and sacrifices. Heroes are silent, solemn, and usually say that their heroes are buried in France.

Canada's heroes, her War dead, are the bedrock of the country. Honour these heroes by attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, by visiting a Legion or Armouries and buying a vet a beer. But most importantly, remember their sacrific tomorrow, and in the 364 days that follow until the next November 11.

I actually had a relative who fought in the 4th Batallion of the Canadian machine Gun Corp. during WW1. He was killed at Vimy Ridge.

Hope all of them RIP.

Being born in Canada and still not knowing my own countries history kind of saddens me. I've always wore a poppy around this time, but never really knew anything about any of the wars. Anyone know any good sites or documentaries I can watch? to help me get a better understanding about any Canadian wars etc.

My grandfather who served in WWII passed a couple years ago. We used to go to services with him every year and would take him for a beer at the local legion after. Last year wasn't easy to go to without him and I don't anticipate it being much better this year.

On a good note, my nephew's staying the night at our place tonight and we'll be taking him to services tomorrow.

To all those who have served. Thank you.
