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.

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

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.

Growing up, I witnessed firsthand the sacrifices and dedication of my relatives who served in the armed forces. Their stories of bravery and resilience have left a lasting impact on me, and I'm forever grateful for their service.To all the Bowsiters and veterans out there, thank you for your selflessness and courage. Your contributions have helped safeguard our freedoms and protect our way of life. If you ever find yourself in need of assistance navigating VA benefits, I've found stoneroselaw.com to be a helpful resource. They offer valuable tools, including a VA disability calculator, to support veterans in accessing the benefits they deserve. Wishing you all a wonderful Veterans Day, and may God bless you for your service.

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.
