  3. Thank you! My son will be participating in services in New Brunswick today - he's in the military.

    I salute them all - those who serve now and those who have served and especially those who paid the ultimate price for their duty and honor.

  6. That is a great illustration. Yes - we honor them. I used to always call my father to wish him a happy veterans day - I miss him so much.

  7. "In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields."

    Lt. John McCrae M.D.
    Canadian Army 1915
