It is a statutory provincial holiday here in NL. My university, Memorial University of Newfoundland, was created in 1925 as a lasting memorial to those Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who died in WWI. Per captia, NL lost more men and women than any other country that fought in WWI. Lest we forget.

Seven is my lucky number, so I donated seven time to the scholarship fund. Lest we forget the children of those who have fallen.

Well said Don. I look forward to your tribute post each year.

I'm even going to borrow your photo.

I've been wearing my "poppy" since Monday to show my gratitude to all those who fought and died.

Here's a photo I posted in the photo thread a few days ago. Taken in Meaford Ontario.

here's a picture of my grandfather, standing on top of one of those V2 german rockets I think it was called. He fought in Holland, and came back after the war, dug a foundation in the ground with a shovel after work, and had a huge family. I don't think, I ever heard that man complain.

So I will be remembering tomorrow as well, everyone who lost their lives, as well as my grandfather who passed not long ago. One couldn't have a better role model.

Interesting, kps, how your photograph is similar to the statue of The Fighting Newfoundlander here in St.John's. I can't even imagine what these soldiers experienced. Lest we forget. Paix, mon ami.
