    November 11

    A respectfull salute to all the soldiers (including americans) who fought in the trenches 90 years ago ! This is a commemorative day.

    I have a Italian great grandfather who emigrated in the US in 1910's and came back to fight with the American troops. He was decorated. He then died in a mine in Wisconsin, in the 20's.

    My grandfather had dual citizenship, was an inch too short for service in the Canadian Corp so he enlisted in the US army (second world war).

    Rememberance day in Canada this year should be good, everyone take a moment at 11 to remember all the kids my age who never made it back from a foreign battlefield.

    Unfortunately it's so cold, wet and raining here in Kansas ceremonies are getting cancelled or postponed.

    In Emporia, where the first Veteran's Day idea was realized and made a holiday, today's parade's been cancelled due to thunderstorms.

    In Hutchinson, the B-17 they brought in for a flyby and plane rides is grounded due to weather.

    We owe more to our Veterans than can ever be paid.

    Big sweeping tip of the hat, a firm handshake, and a heartfelt "THANK YOU!" to all that have served, or are now In Harm's Way protecting us and our way of life.

    And a long moment of very reverent silence for those that gave all, or otherwise are no longer among us.

    Have a good Armistice/Remembrance Day.

    Thank you for making this post. I'm not sure how many people know what 11 November is anymore, other than us Veterans? There are times I think the only people who care about Veterans are us Veterans, hope I'm wrong.

    I have got to be one of the few people of 37 who call today Armistice Day. My parents were from the WWII Generation and I always heard them call today Armistice Day, so I still do.

    In the three generations that the part of family I'm with came to the US from England, most of the men have Served, including me also. None of us have died whilst Serving the U.S.

    From what I could find out so far, I'm fairly certain that I have had family members give their lives for England. My Dad has mentioned having an ancestor who was an officer during the Boer War as well. In light of that, I'd like to say to any members of this board from the British Commonwealth nations to have a good Remembrance Day as well.

    Here is a photo of my Dad taken before going to the Pacific in 1944, and a photo of Dad and I at Memorial Day Ceremony in 2002.


    Thank You

    It didn't really fit in with the spirit of my earlier post, so I'll put it here: To those that disparage our fine Men & Women that rise each and every day by picking up the gauntlet of defending freedom, I have nothing for you except for endless raging contempt....and an open invitation to live somewhere else.
