Lest We Forget...

 

November 11th 2018 marks a significant milestone in history…100 years since Armistice Day, the day when armies stopped fighting World War I. King George V held the first Armistice Day at Buckingham Palace in 1919 and 100 years later we continue to commemorate veterans and the war fallen.

 

My grandfather (Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment) is buried in Sicily having lost his life in WWII when my mother was a baby. Having had a stepfather (who was in the Canadian Navy during WWII) and having a father in the military, I have been to my fair share of ceremonies over the years. If you are able to, make the time and take your family to a cenotaph in your neighbourhood. Thank a veteran. And continue to support veterans and active service members for serving our country and making the sacrifices that allow us our freedoms.
