Veterans Day

Postby WharfRat » Fri Nov 11, 2005 10:52 am

Today is really brought home for me, because a week ago an old classmate of mine died in Iraq. I doubt we have many vets at the Cafe, but for those who are:

Thanks.

My surviving grandpa and my uncle were both vets, I plan on giving them a call. ;-D

Here's to remember all of our veterans... both living and dead, those who are serving in the middle east and those who have given their lives there.

Today is a day to remember what our troops have done, and are doing, for us.
If you're a battery, you're either working or you're dead....

This is also Remebrance Day in Canada.

All Canadians should observe two minutes of silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

1.5 millions Canadians volunteered to fight in the first and second world wars (almost 10% of our population at the time) and 110,000 died so that we could enjoy peace and liberty.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

- John McCrae

My greatest respect goes to those who have put their lives on the line to fight for our country ;-D

Both of my Grandpa's and my step-grandfather fought in WWII and one of those Grandpas went on to spend his whole life working in the state department ;-D
