OT If Allowed - Lest we Forget -November 11

Postby Gracewashere » Mon Nov 04, 2013 6:50 pm

I,as an older (in age) poster wanted to just put aside our differences (and we have many), just to say thanks to those who have gone before us. Join me in saying thanks and posting your thoughts. (if allowed)

I had two uncles who came ashore in Normandy many, many years ago, one uncle was at Dunkirk (the Miracle at Dunkirk) and one uncle who died as a Canadian soldier in Hong Kong, not sure they would be too proud of us here on this board at times...but nonetheless...Lest We Forget...Join Me anyone in saying thanks...

A grandfather who served in the Korean War. And uncle who served in Vietnam. My father was drafted for Vietnam but never got to go but he still was made to serve 4 years stationed in Korea. Now I have two first cousins who have served more tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan than I care to say (the military should really restrict deployments but that is another story altogether)...

I thank all the military men and women, along with their families, for their sacrifice.

What a great idea and you're right, we don't thank those who fought for our rights near enough. My father was in Europe in World War II and my brother did a tour of duty in Viet Nam. They served their country with honor and I am very proud of both of them, just as I am of all people who serve in the armed forces, no matter what the branch of service. I also think we all need to remember those who became missing in action and were never brought home to be honored for their sacrifice. God bless them all.

Thank you all for responding. I have read each and every one. Thank you. Royal Canadian Engineers! My father was a "sapper" with the Royal Canadian Engineers in the second world war.
