 Lest we forget.

As I type this out, I am sitting here waiting for my father and an uncle to pick me up to go to the rememberance day ceremonies.

I would ask that at the 11th hour, of this 11th day of the 11th month that each person who sees this take a moment to reflect on our freedom, and what it has cost.

Most especially I would ask that you think of those that have paid, and are still paying, that cost.

In the name of God I wish each one of our comrades in arms deliverance from harm and safe passage home to their loved ones, and for those that have gone before us, rest in eternal glory until we can once again stand beside them.

Amen.

Our societies have become fat, stupid and languorous.

We don't even know the danger we live in and have forgotten the costs of being and staying free.

Thanks for the reminder, Murf.

 Lest we forget.

Every year I go, and every year I come home a mess, and my wife says the same thing "Why do you put yourself through that?" and my reply is always the same, "Because THEY went through that.".

They had some school kids there, reciting poems and so on, one little girl, a recent immigrant from a troubled land, read her "Lest we forget." essay, her remarks brought the entire crowd to tears.

She said we should never forget because we are so lucky to live in a peaceful land, and asked that we think of those who CANNOT forget, those who live in daily fear of their lives because of conflict and hatred, and remember the sacrifice that got us here.

Out of the mouths of babes.......

 Lest we forget.

I am the only one in our small office who remembered to mark this day. I am the only one I know who volunteered for the armed forces during the Vietnam conflict. I am the only one I know with a son in the service today. And because I do not have a red white and blue Bush/Cheney sticker on my bumper, I am the only one to be labled unpatriotic. I dearly hope that those whom we remember today will not have given their lives in vain. I pray that the country survives the current regime and the great division we see today melts away and we can once again live up to the reputation we once held in the world.

Woodbutcher, My mouth is hanging open in utter amazement.

Would you prefer to break bread with those who hate you for what you intrinsically are?

Finally, finally, after how many terrorist attacks on US interests(??)... 10 or 12 at least over the last 25 years.... we have found a man willing to fight back, and you think HE is destroying the country?

Unbelievable.

I know that there are numerous past and present military people who contribute to this site. Thanks to all of you and to the many others who have served or are serving.

 Lest we forget.

Unfortunately there is MUCH misunderstanding associated with this day.

I have been called many names, mostly a 'war monger' for my attendance, in uniform, at veteran's day, or as we call it up here, remembrance day services.

I have also been slandered for wearing an American military uniform in Canada.

My reply has always been the same, "Is the official language still English?".

Today though a young lady paid me a compliment in a small but extremely meaningful way when we stopped for a coffee on the way home to warm up after a chilly stand in the cold November winds for the service. I ordered 3 coffees, she placed 3 large mugs of coffee on the table, and beside each mug a small glass, behind here stood her father with a bottle of brandy in his hand. He said his daughter had asked why there were soldiers in the restaurant, was everything OK. He said he told her she was in Canada now, everything was more than OK, it was perfect.

They were from Yugoslavia, their villige had been monitored by Canadian peace-keeping troops, the safety the troops had allowed them to flee their country in favour of this one.

The compliment? The daughter, a beautiful teenage girl of an age that should not know war, thanked us profusely for leaving such a beautiful safe land as this toi travel half-way around the world and put ourselves in harm's way to protect her & her family. I told her it was not me. She said, "To me you are every soldier in the world, God bless you."

I thanked her and said he already had.

The coffee was free.

"For all those who serve, and all those who have served, we can never thank them enough."

TV comercial I just saw. Says it all for me.

Every year we have a moment of silence at IBM for Veteran's day. We had a moment of silence today. Thanks to all who served and who serve today to give us our freedom. Thanks to the many who we never knew because they made the ultimate sacrifice.
