  1. This is very powerful.
    Remembrance day is so important

  2. This is the 90th Anniversary of the first Armistice Day commemorated in America when on November 11, 1919 President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the following words:

    “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”

    Remember the Fallen and the Most Gallant Generation…
