Whether you call it Veteran's Day, Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, November 11th is a time to put aside politics and pay tribute to all who died for their country. As I did last year, I am republishing Canuk's last tribute. The comment he posted provides one example of why he was a special person:
"I too "will remember your friends who never had a full life", while thanking you and your comrades who have served with pride, honesty and honour.Another special person, Bill Pytlovany, is honoring Veterans by providing a special discount on WinPatrol this week. See Veteran's Day is Special All Week Long.
Despite anyone's thoughts of the current conflict in Iraq - opposition or agreement, we must always remember that these brave young men and women are fighting for a cause they also may or may not agree with. The huge difference between them and us is that they are putting their lives on the line 24/7 while we sit in our homes in comfort, using the freedom of speech previous warriors won for us, and for that they deserve our love, respect, and support."
LEST WE FORGET
