    Default Remembrance Day

    Hello to all, in North America today we celebrate, honour and recognize the contribution our Veterans have made and to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of United States and Canada.

    Thank you.

    I am working today but it would be nice if all our tankers and pilote online today at 11 est have a moment of silence in honour.

    I've smelled the land,where blood runs free. I've trod the ground where many have died to be free. Free of the Pharoah,free of the Shah. Free of others whom would take their lives for naught. I've rode in the vehicles,which claimed this land. Their shells battered and dented,like so many of our Lads. We patrolled and We fought, from turrets and boots. We've shed blood and lives to save innocents and kill those who would loot,their money and their freedom. Some say We fought for Bush,or perhaps for the oil. Many say We fought for Ol' Glory,and the safety of American soil. Having smelled the smoke,and seen the elephant,I'm here to tell You true. We didn't for for Mom,Apple Pie,or even her,or YOU.We fought for the Man to our left,and the other to our right. We heard their cries,and yells of war,and responded with all our might.I've seen 100,sent to rescue one. I've seen one,rescue so many they are uncounted.

    Today remembers all the Veterans,of all the Wars,ever fought,anywhere,for any reason. For when the sword, the musket,the rifle is in Your hand,You fight not for God or Country,You fight for the squad You came with. From the walls of Jericho, to the Plains of Syria. The fields of death in the USA,to the streets of Stalingrad.From flaming cities in WWII,to flaming skyscrapers in YOUR Country. We.Fought. We answered the call when many cowered. We stood tall when many faltered. WE.ARE.YOUR.VETERANS. That many are homeless is tantamount to criminal.That many go without care for their wounds,both seen and un-seen,is shameful. For once,Just once,In our digitally led, electronically leashed lives,look up and find a Man or Woman to thank. From the Code breakers of Bletchely Park, to those whom serve under the waves,in the dark. THEY are whom You have to thank for Your freedom,Your dignity,Your honor.

    Thank.Them. Now.

    IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
    The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
    By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

    Lieutenant Colonel John McCraeIn 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
