It is a beautiful poem, thanks for posting it and remembering.
It is always nice to see this poem. Remembering is important, especially in these times when memory is short.
....well, I looked at the blank comment box through teary eyes for a few minutes and couldn't think of anything profound. So, I'll just say thanks for your post, and thanks to all who served.
We were taught this poem in grade school for Remembrance Day, although I fail to remember all the words the first two lines have always stayed with me as well as its meaning. I too honor and thank those that served and the many that sacrificed their lives.
Comments are more than welcome, however, thanks to an increase in anonymous spammers of late, you now must be a registered user to comment. Thank you spammers!
