Lest We Forget: Veterans Day/Remembrance Day

[This is a repost of my annual Veterans Day/Remembrance Day post with a few updates.]

Today in the United States it is, “Veterans Day”; in Canada and the Commonwealth Countries it is, “Remembrance Day”.  Although similar in sentiment, Veterans Day is defined as a day to honor those who have fought for the United States in all wars.  In Canada and other Commonwealth countries, Remembrance Day is to remember the soldiers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in duty to their country.  I feel the day is the same, no matter which side of the border we are standing.

I have a very strong connection with the Canadian Armed Forces.  Having had close relatives serve with the Canadian Army and Air Force, this day has very special meaning to me.  I hope you will join me today in honoring our American, Canadian, and Commonwealth country veterans and those who have fallen with a moment of silence and reflection.  Oh, and grandpa, you know how proud we all are of your service in WWII from 1939-1945; I hope wherever you are, you are aware of this.

Blessings to all who have served and serve our countries.  We will never forget you.
