On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the war to end all wars came to an end. The war that lasted 5 years and devastated the European continent and people - close to 40million casualties - was suppose to be the last great war. How could any country or people dare go through such horror again. Alas the globe suffered another, even more deadly conflict in 1939 and we continue to this day to have war and conflicts.
While today is specifically set aside to remember the brave men and women who are serving and have served and sacrificed so that we could live under the blanket of freedom we should always be thankful for their service and efforts.
I dare not think of how things could be were it not for their actions.
