It is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended WW1.
Let us remember all who died, were wounded, suffered mental problems, or grieved for lost loved ones, in any conflict.

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.

Remember.

Herkybird wonderful post. 👍🏻 Thank you. I think many of us have relatives who have served and seen the heartbreaking damage it's done.

May I brorrow your words and photo for something else?

Kindest regards,

Klaus

My Grandfather and his twin brother went 'over there.'

Grandad came home, albeit minus a lot of lung function
(chlorine gas). Uncle Harrison is still 'over there.'

Each served in Company D, 343 Infantry, 37th Division.

Sorry for you loss Ed.

My great grandfather was in the Calvary and came back a broken man :(

Then my grandfather served in WW2 shocking how he came back.

Sorry for everyone's losses on all sides of the Great War and beyond.

Best regards,

Klaus

Thanks for posting. Grandpa lost a brother (and most of his Company) at Verdun. Dad was an Engineer in WWII and Korea. Uncle in Italy. Many Cousin's in Vietnam.

Lest we forget.

Indeed

My wife's family lost two great-uncles in the 99th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force and a third so badly wounded he stayed in England and never came home; another great-uncle was a fitter in the Royal Flying Corps – we have his discharge papers framed in our home

Sometimes I am ashamed we all are not better people. We owe it to the guys who have never returned home.

Saw the Peter Jackson movie "They Shall Not Grow Old" yesterday afternoon. His movie company has restored WW1 film from the Imperial War Museum in the UK, to the point where much of it looks like it was filmed today, an astonishing record to see and not to be missed if you have the chance. Be prepared though, there are confronting images not suitable for children.

Thank you, Herkybird.

Stood with my American Legion post this morning for its 11am Veterans Day flag raising ceremony. Proud to honor those who served 100 years ago and those who followed.

Both grandfathers in my family got on the wrong end of poison gas,one in France as a US Marine,the other stateside in a US Army chem unit. Both survived,though the one who was stateside had neurological damage most of his life afterwards,including seizure disorders,but was lucky enough to be able to sense when one was coming on.
