Veterans, thank you

Thank you to all who have served in the armed forces. Without your sacrifice we would not be a free nation. Again, thank you.

A big thanx indeed. And for all our newer members don`t forget to check out our very own past/present military members thread here on the forum.

A little bit of history- today is 11/11/11. But Veterans day comes from another 11/11/11. The Armistice effectively ending WWI was signed on The eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, 1918. This became Armistice Day and later Veterans Day.

Great trivia Lee! And thanks to all who have served their country in the military!

Veterans, here is a little known fact when sailing on a cruise ship. When booking your cruise, ask about how you can receive from $50 - $250 shipboard credit to spend as you like. Anyone who has served in the military in Canada or the USA qualify. Those who have been honorably discharged, retired, or currently active are eligible! We are loyal to Carnival and Princess cruises and I know for certain both offer this "Thank you for serving" opportunity to veterans.

I agree. Now all that needs to be done is to convince some politicians that they owe the vets.

Thanking a veteran one day a year is like swimming in a dixie cup; It's just not enough. To those who fought, those who fight and those who have paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we all enjoy; we owe you a debt we can never repay. Thank you.

And don't forget Remembrance Day for us here in Canada and throughout what was called the British Empire. A little trivia for you, Canada and the United Kingdom are the only countries who display the Poppy as a tribute to the fallen.

"In Flanders fields the poppies grow
between the crosses row on row...."

Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries since the end of World War I to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. This day, or alternative dates, are also recognized as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918; hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice ("at the 11th hour" refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 a.m.)
The day was specifically dedicated by King George V on 7 November 1919 as a day of remembrance of members of the armed forces who were killed during World War I. This was possibly done upon the suggestion of Edward George Honey to Wellesley Tudor Pole, who established two ceremonial periods of remembrance based on events in 1917.[1]
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields". These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

A must read!

Through the years my kids have always called and thanked me on Veterans for my military service, but this year really caught me off guard. Today, I received a card from my daughter (a nurse) and she has always had a way of expressing her feelings, like no one else I know. I am sharing her card with you, I hope you can read it OK... One day I will figure out how to enlarge the pictures I post. She probably should write for Hallmark...

THANK YOU!!!! to ALL the VETERANS, their families and friends that support you!!

Don
