Lest We Forget!

Lest We Forget

Every year, November 11 is a special day to all military personnel.  Today, we take the time to honor the fallen, wounded and serving military men, women and their families. Their sacrifices have allowed for the freedoms we enjoy today.  It is important to give thanks and be grateful for our wonderful lives they protect. This is my second year out of uniform after 36 years of service. It will be a different experience for me as full fledged veteran, but it will not diminish my gratitude to all my brothers and sisters in arms!

Before I begin, I want to thank all my brothers and sisters in arms in the Canadian Armed Forces and our Allies for their service. 

After 104 years since the armistice was signed, it is still important to remember the sacrifices that the world made during that conflict. Additionally, we cannot forget the sacrifices made by those who serve and continue to serve their country since; the too are remembered.

If were wondering about Canada’s contribution during The First World War:

In Flanders Fields is read at every Remembrance Day Ceremony I have attended.

Remembrance Day is a special occasion and I will be spending it remembering the sacrifices of brother’s and sister’s in arms who came before me. On this solemn day, I will give thanks for the freedom and liberties I enjoy everyday!

I am grateful to veterans! See you on the links!

  1. Last night I watched a segment of the Steve Pagan show on TVO. The guest was Tim Cook of the Canadian War Museum and a terrific author and presenter. His recent book deals with the horrific medical side of World War 1. The interview took on a personal touch when it was revealed that cancer that he had previously dealt with has returned. He found it ironic that he was experiencing similar fears and anxieties that he had written about in his book. I highly recommend reading his books to understand the horrors of war but also to appreciate the development of expertise that is shown by your commitment to your daily blog.
