I've worn both the Canadian Poppy and the British Poppy in vastly different places and different years on November 11th. Whether you call it Veteran's Day or Remembrance Day, and whether you wear a poppy or not, it is important to remember those who served, and those who gave their lives for their country.
Lest We Forget.
What is often forgotten is the very young age of so many who served, and the very young age of so many of those who lost their lives. In my own, small way, I remember them, by writing a book. It's fiction, but reality-based. I'm still working on it, but I've posted an excerpt on this site: Courage in Combat: The Flying Fighters.
