Remembrance Sunday 2017

In Military History, Featured

Today is Remembrance Sunday in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth of Nations, where we take time to reflect and remember those who have died in wars since World War I. 

Below is a very fitting and touching tribute from The Royal British Legion, which features the famous war poem, 'In Flanders Fields'. The poem was written by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae following the funeral of Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who was killed at the Second Battle of Ypres. Since its first publication in the magazine Punch in December 1915, the poem has remained incredibly popular.

Sending solemn and respectful greetings from across the Atlantic.
In my corner of the world (Yorktown, VA) we had a ceremony for Veterans Day.
