Memorial Day

A simple moment of silence today, in memory.


  1. Being you are Canadian this post means alot and I thank you for it.

  2. You don't have to be an American to recognize the sacrifice of your brave men and women. In Canada we remember our men and women in uniform and our fallen in November.

    My thanks go to the soldiers who have served both countries, and other countries e.g. Great Britain), who serve in the defense of liberty. The sacrifice so many have made cannot be repaid except to ensure that those liberties are not taken away, and to honor those who have helped us inherit our freedoms today.

    American soldier in particular have exhibited exceptional courage, exceptional effort and exceptional sacrifice in defense of those freedoms. I deserve no thanks for recognizing it - it is a duty for anyone, regardless of country, who cherishes the freedom we enjoy.

  3. Dean, I know as I have Canadian blood running through my vein's. I also have a Union Jack from the battlefield of WW1 in France that my Grandfather brought back to Canada as that was the flag he fought under.

    In no way do I as an American wish to diminish the role in fighting for freedom of our allies (and family in my case) but recognize that reading the word's you spelled out here speak volumes coming from what is more and more a hostile world to the United States.

    If you are aware of a Canadian who has since passed, Byron MacGregor, you would find that both of you are on the same page.
