For Veterans and Armistice

Today, like every November 11, is Veteran’s Day in the U.S. It is right and fitting that we honor and thank our military veterans and their families for their service and their sacrifice.

We should also remember today’s older name - Armistice Day. This day we set aside to be thankful for the end of a tragic and wasteful war. My wish this Veteran’s/Armistice Day is for all of our service members engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan to come home safely.

  1. Up* here in Canada we call it Remembrance Day and the city of Montreal held a very good Remembrance Day ceremony on the campus of McGill University. It was nice to see representatives of the military forces of various other nations, including not only Gautemala and Honduras, but also some former Soviet republics such as Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

    * Well down here for you I guess ;-)
