Remembrance 11:11 11/11/11

from the internet
At this time, on this hour, on this day, I will be remembering ... my Grandfather, for serving his new found home, Canada in WWI, my Great Uncle, for serving in that same war, and my Great Uncle's only child, an Air Force Pilot, who was shot down during WWII.

My Grandfather (standing) and his older brother, my Great Uncle.
I will be standing in the November cold remembering ... seems like such a small small price to pay for freedom ...

The Pin from my Grandfathers hat (see the photo above)

I thank an honour everyone who has in some way contributed to my freedom, who help defend our Nation, who help others defend their own Nations ... for all of the PeaceKeeping Missions ... for all of the lives lost and dramatically changed ... I wish you all peace ... and eternity of peace ....

My Grandfather joins the force.

You will never be forgotten you brave soldiers.

My father served in WWII. He came home mentally ill and never recovered. He eventually committed suicide when he was 50. War is hell!!
