Thread: Remembrance day

  1. #1

    Default Remembrance day

    Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. This day, or alternative dates, are also recognised as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.

    Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918, as the major hostilities of World War I were formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice. (Note that "at the 11th hour", refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.)

    I know my American Neighbors to the south celebrate Veterans day / Armistice Day at the end of the Korean War (1954).

    As an ex-member of the Canadian Forces, I invite all those to a minute of silence at 11:11 am.

    Thank you for your time and remembrance! Never forget!

    I missed this yesterday, but thank you for posting it. One of my sons is an active duty Marine and I was thinking of him and all who serve yesterday.
