people out there supporting the USA's freedom and some are losing their lives over it to protect us that's why its Important to me.
In honour of my Uncle Matt who died in WW1 and my Father Eddie who served 22 years in the Army and was twice mentioned in dispatches for valour by Field Marshal Lord Haige.
Now who was Uncle Matt? Have you done any of the family tree Uncle Paul. I would love to know our roots.
My ucncle was killed in Vietnam right before I was born and I never got to see what a great person he was I hear stories from my dad but he lost a part of him and our family lost a wonderful soul for our country!
Abig thank you to the men and women who risk their lives for our freedom give them the respect and rewards they so deserve,no pension cuts show them how proud we are of them ,and how we appreciate them protecting us and our country .
my Dad fought in WW11 with the RCAF, flying in bombers as a wireless operator, and I also had a couple of uncles, my Dad's brothers , who also fought for the cause in WW11. I think it is so important a cause, that Nov. 11th should be declared a National Holiday....
This cause is important to me because soldiers pay the ultimate price for our freedom.
many family members have served.
My father, father-in-law, and most of my uncles served in WW2; and I have other friends who also served in the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Many of my peers also served in the Persian Gulf War. There is nothing more noble than the soldierly virtue of our military forces. They deserve this recognition. Let me steal a quote from President Barak Obama: "It is the right thing to do."
My Father served this country for 30+ years, Dad I salute you as a serviceman and also as a great Father and role model to me, Rest in peace Dad and God bless xx.
also a loving grandad xx
Have been assisting Servicemen & women and ex service and their dependants for the past 12 years as a volunteer for SSAFA Forces Help.
well done xxx
Never forget who gave us our freedom, and the best country in the world to live in.....
AMEN...too bad we only 'recognize' these people ONCE A YEAR
