Saluting Our War Heroes of WW1 and WW2

Friday, November 08, 2013

Good Morning All,

Wishing you all a good Friday and coming weekend ahead, during this weekend, let's not forget to pause and reflect and remember our WW1 and WW2 Veterans "Our Fallen War Heroes" who paid the ultimate price for our freedom and for our Countries to have a future here in Canada and the United States.

We need to pause and reflect on these things and pray for those families of our Fallen War Heroes and for our War Vets who are still alive, I have my own Father and some friend's at Church who fought in WW2, they still shed tears when they remember their fallen comrades who they saw killed on the battle fields.

My own Grandfather fought on the Lanz Front in France, was gassed twice and saw some terrible atrocities which haunted him for many years after the war. It wasn't until he was well into his 80's that he could speak about his role. My Dad at 92 does not speak at all about it, he will cry but will not talk about it, my friend is caught in the past and talks of it constantly.

Let's Remember our War Heroes, the stories need to be shared so our young people growing up know what these men and women did for us, they are reaping the rewards of freedom today because of what our WW1 and WW2 Vets did for us...I Salute these War Heroes...

    Very well said. My dad passed away more than 2 years ago, but he was a veteran of World War 2. He didn't talk much about his time in the service; he was in the Pacific, and most of the guys he went over there with did not come back.

    I salute them too. My Dad was in the U. S. Army in Germany, France and Italy. He never talked about it much either. He lived to be 93.

    Very nice. Yes, Remembrance Day is Monday and I always remember. My Dad (now passed) fought in World War II. He fought through France and Belgium, but mainly in the Scheldt area of Holland and worked his way to the docks at Amsterdam. He never wanted to talk about the War. He would always tear up. It must have been horrible. I miss him so.

    We must always remember, lest we forget.

    Thank you so much for posting this, Judith.
