Time To Remember

England, 1943



What a handsome bunch. This photo is special because it is of My Dad (bottom left), and of his Brother (standing behind him). My Dad and My Uncle both served their time in World War II, and were fortunate to come home and spend the remainder of their lives with their families. For me, this is a priceless picture, and I wanted to post it today, Remembrance Day.

A very simple picture with a very simple message.....
Please take time out to Remember at the 11th hour of today, the 11th day, of the 11th month..

Thank you to you-know-who for the photo. You know that I will always cherish this.

We have a similar day here to pay homage to our veterans. It's aptly called Veterans Day. We too take this time to honor those that fought so we can enjoy our freedom. Enjoy this day.

This is a very good picture of your dad, it reminds me of that one evening...when he talked to us about the war.
