Lest We Forget

Today marks the day we remember those who fought for the freedom that we have today.

To those men and women who made great sacrifices for our great country and to those that still are; today is the one of many that I say, thank you

Let's take this time to remember those who lost their life for everything we have today. Today at 11:00 am, let us give a moment of silence to reflect on our great country's history; all those it involved, and let us always remember how our freedom came to be.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

Lest we forget.

This is my late grandfather, Robert Green. Although he was not a a war time veteran, he served in the navy on the aircraft carrier, Bonaventure.
