In Canada,it's called " Remembrance Day",and most everything is closed,at least until afternoon .From the National War Memorial in Ottawa,to the cenotaphs in every city and town,Canadians stop for one minute of silence at the eleventh hour

We will remember our veterans tomorrow at the high school. Every year there is a nice ceremony with music and readings. Our veterans can speak if they want. Then a wreath is layed at the Town Hall memorial. It's very nice.

IMHO. The military, LEOs, courts, etc. are a necessary evil on this planet. I just hope we always have the right folks for the right job that they do so well well and unselfishly. Many decisions "from above" we might question. But, these heroes follow through. Yep.

I've never served in the military, I was always a civilian sidekick. Met some of the most determined, competent and dedicated folks one could ever want to meet. Way better than most I met in my Wall Street days.

Have a Marine bud coming from his fifth and last tour to Iraq next month. We're just praying he's here in one piece next month. He just laughs and says "It's what we do. At least y'all won't treat me the way the Viet guys were so shamefully treated." Needless to say - he's getting a hero's welcome. Respect them for what they've done for us at great personal expense.
