May we honor our Canadian friends as they observe Rembembrance Day on November 11th in honor of the their soldiers who served in Europe during World War which finally ended with the Armistice in 1918. You can be proud of the sacrifice made by them. As a younger American Army veteran who will be celebrate our Veterans Day tomorrow, I have great admiration and respect for all men and women who have served their country, USA or Canada!

Thanks, and we also respect and honor your veterans who've been the most over worked and over used military entity on the planet since the end of WWI when the German Armistice was signed on November 11th, 1918. You've always been there to help whenever or wherever you've been needed, and we all appreciate it.

Sad that the day has become little more than a theme to base retail sales on. It is a day of business as usual for most.

Across Britain & the Commonwealth it is a day of respect & remembrance. Even if you are not at a service at a cenotaph in your town at eleven minutes past the eleventh hour on the eleventh of November you stop for a few moments to remember when the guns fell silent at that time in 1918 & give thanks & respect to those who gave their all.

Well said, I will be at the cenotaph at my home town, Canso Nova Scotia when they call the roll for my father, WW II vet.

At least the retail sales bring attention to the day so it's not forgotten, and some offer additional discounts to our military that could really use them. Several families have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Least we never forget past and present. The longest war still goes on.

I'm just learning something. The Allies recruited labour to clean up roads and do other manual labour. These men came from China and were quietly shipped across Canada to be ferried to France. The quietness of the effort was because immigrant Chinese had to pay $500.00 to stay in Canada in those days.

Thanks to all who served.
The state of many of our World War memorials is deplorable. Many sit forgotten and neglected (Like Oahu's Natatorium). If you get a chance, please support them.

We just came back from the service at our local village cenotaph. Short military parade, Oh Canada, Flanders Fields poem, WW2 flypast, Last Post, a full two minutes silence, the lament, The Rouse? Laying of about twenty wreaths, God Save the Queen. As invited, most left their poppies an the cenotaph. Very moving.
