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.

From: Jasper
Very well said Tom and I could not agree more. God bless my friend!

From: badbull
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

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.

From: Jasper
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!

US Navy 1967-71 . Radarman ll aboard the destroyer USS Willard Keith and USS Laffey. The Laffey is now a part of the Patriots Point Naval museum in Charleston Harbor, SC. alongside the USS Yorktown. The Laffey took several kamikaze hits during the battle of Midway and was still able to steam under her own power. Amazing crew.

Army: 67 to 69 one year in sunny SE Asie, a real eye opener.

It sounds like the celebration in Calgary was a moving tribute to our fallen heroes. Your reflection on your dad's courage and sacrifice is truly touching. It's important to honor and remember the bravery of those who served, like your dad and countless others.
