World War II Historian and Novelist
I had never heard of Veterans Day - thanks for sharing.In NZ and I imagine the rest of the British Commonwealth, November 11th is called Armistice Day. We observe a minutes silence at 11 am to remember the fallen and in Dunedin there is a military gun salute at our cenotaph followed by a fly over by an old WWII plane.In the past I have been on a rooftop car park directly under the fly over. A very moving event."At the going down of the sun And in the morning, We will remember them."
I think it was called Armistice Day here, too (will have to check on that), but it's just called Veterans Day now. And yes - we will never forget them. They are true heroes.
This is one thing I love about you. You're patriotic and sincerely love this country. God bless.
Aww, thanks, L.T. =D I do love this country, despite her many faults. Whenever I think of how we defeated the British during the Revolution and formed our own government, it literally makes me well up with pride. What an amazing thing our forefathers built.
I love to hear from you!
