Just a thread to mark Remembrance Day.  For thoughts you may have for those that have already served, or are serving now.

Isn't Remembrance day on the 11th of November? Or is that just in Belgium...

It is the 11th, but good to do these things preemptively.

Wearing a poppy and respecting troops, past and present.

Just wanted to leave my sentiments to fallen heroes. There are no words that can give them appropriate thanks for defending their country. So to them I offer my deepest thanks for their selflessness.

Besides the fallen, there are the wounded, both mentally and physically. As a veteran of the ending of a war that was not so popular in the U.S. (Vietnam War) I know many a friend who has died, and some who still suffer from it and yet if asked they would say they would do it all over again...for the cause of freedom: not politics, nor religion, but for freedom...period!

I thank God for the U.S. and its allies for the sacrifices of their men, women and families during this time of remembrance. May we never forget....

I agree with you whole-heartedly my friend. I've tried literally countless times to join the military to serve my country. Sadly they say I'm physically fit enough but my mental status prevents me from joining active military service even though it's the ONLY career I want. Anyway, I'm very thankful for my freedom and for the men and women who have given their lives to protect it. May the might of Mjollnir be with our troops.

Regards,

Dagan

I was remiss in my praise of just U.S. soldiers and their families who have been wounded, maimed or died in the service of their country for fighting for those oppressed and for the cause of freedom!

I sincerely apologize as I know there were and are many men, women and their families from other countries besides the U.S. who have valiantly done so...case in point, the one's grandfrather who started this thread...

Please forgive me, Yurie.

There's nothing to forgive, Capher!   :)

I never realised the scale of World War Two when I was a student at school.  My history teacher never mentioned the troops that came from the British Empire.  I only started to think about it when I was in Kumasi, Ghana.  There's a military museum there that documents the lives of Ghanaian soldiers.  I guess it wasn't called a World War for nothing!

Just another example of my anglo-centric educational experience!
