in Canada we call it Rememberance Day, but it means the same thing no matter which side of the border you happen to live on.

Thank You to all those who have fought, are fighting, or will fight for the freedoms we enjoy.

I gave my youngest brother a call. He served in Iraq two years ago.

I think he appreciated the phone call.

If you know a veteran, give him or her a call...

Througout the day the Civil War kept coming to mind. Over 800 thousand perished for freedom. Our President overcame!!!!

I talked to a veteran at an antique store yesterday. I guess he owned the place.
He was ranting something about "at least put a flag outside" to someone on the phone. :lol: He was a nice guy though.

My first attempt at marriage began in France with a native and ended in the states. Second attempt succeeded :mrgreen:

I've lost most of the language because of non-use, just the easy words remain. Lots of great memories of my time over there, from France to surrounding countries for one reason or another got to travel incomunicado/incognito :mrgreen:
