Happy Veterans Day All!
We went downtown Calgary and took part in a celebration. They have the field of crosses for everyone who had died in a war. A ceremony at sunrise and sunset. I think of my dad at 18 crossing the Atlantic then storming the beach of Normandy. Those were men, real men, not pussies or soy boys. We owe them a great gratitude and we all need to keep up and stand up for the values they fought for. We will never forget but sadly many will. Our Canadian government is an embarrassment and we do not pay tribute to those who serve like my American friends do. You should be proud of that. Your friend, Tom.
Very well said Tom and I could not agree more. God bless my friend!
tthomas, sorry to hear that regarding your Canadian government. I will be attending a neighborhood party down the street in honor of veterans. As a proud veteran, I appreciate people that acknowledge the service of all veterans as well. As you do, I think of the uncle that raised me who also stormed the beach at Normandy. Happy Veterans Day! Badbull
Thank you Veterans for your service!
Thank you and may God bless all who served!
Uncles on both sides of my family served in some form of service for our country... I am so fortunate to have shared many good times with those gentlemen... they truly were a different breed. Thank you Veterans. Just lost my last Uncle from the greatest generation, he served in Korea... came home a different person my mom said... he was 91, married to my aunt 70 plus yrs!
Thank you to all Veterans past and present.
My Dad is a WW2 veteran. Served in the Navy on a destroyer escort ship when he just turned 18. Wednesday will be his 98th birthday. The Sea Isle City N.J VFW have setup a little birthday gathering for him. Dad and my Mom have been married 76 years. God bless our Vets.
James, your Dad will be 98?!!! Wow, a true hero who has lived an amazing life. Please tell him Happy Birthday from the Bowsite and that he is admired more than he can imagine! I hope y’all enjoy your time together immensely. God bless!
USAF 1959 to 1963. Keep your flags flying high and never give up! My best, Paul
Thanks to all who served and to those presently serving!
