Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day.
Today we remember all the men and women 
who served our country in the wars and peacekeeping
 missions past and present.
The poppy is a symbol of Remembrance
and I am wearing mine.
Mom's Dad and Uncle served in WW2



When Mom was in Ottawa this summer,
 she was able to visit the War Memorial.


This picture is from a calendar and shows 
a Remembrance Day ceremony held in Ottawa.


Mom also got to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier



This is what the top looks like.


After the ceremony on Remembrance Day'
people leave their poppies on the tomb.
They also leave flowers,letters and pictures.




Purrs to all who served and continue to serve.
Thank You!

A perfect Remembrance Day post. (We actually kind of like that name better than Veteran's Day).

Wonderful post, Mickey!
Mom and dad's nephew is on his way home from Afghanistan, in fact might be home now. We are very, very thankful for his safe return.

Beautiful Remembrance Day post, Mickey. My mom's dad served in WW2 and Korea, and all her uncles but the youngest did too.

What a lovely post. Over here in NZ we remember the service men and women on 25 April and call it ANZAC day.
