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...."
