I don't know about the other countries but in canada November 11th is a day to commemorate the veterans who fought in combat and/or peacekeeping missions. There porbably aren't any reading this but truly thank you.:bows:
Here in Britain we have a Nation wide 2 min Silence on the 11th hour or the 11th day of the 11th month, The Radio at work even went silent.
Same here and we wear poppies yay!
poppys here aswell mate
dammit thought we were the only poopy bearers meh oh well welcome to the club
We have a Veterans Day here in America, yet you would never know by watching the news, or reading the newspaper. The only columns ever written about Veterens Day in most newspapers are found on either the 7th or 8th page, or in the Lifestyles/Variety section. It makes me very sad. I called my uncle who served in Vietnam, thanked him and payed my respects so at least someone cares. The media obviously doesn't.
They deserve so much respet and get none or little its horrible really...
Here's to the veterans of combat, no matter what the nation, hopefully the lives that were lost were well worth the peace. (raises and drinks a shot of whiskey) :beer:
not just the veterans of combat, but all who served their country
well said, well said
