Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day / Armistice Day / Poppy Day) is typically a day that is held in high regards for many people, so too is it here at The Guardians. We remember those who gave their lives to protect us during the conflicts of the 20th century and beyond, and to those brave men and women who continue to heed the call to service to protect those whom they do not know.
Myself being a former Military Service Member I also hold this holiday in high regard as not only have I lost friends in the line of duty, but come from a long line of patriots who have served. There are also many current and former TG Members (too numerous for me to list here) who have also served, and whose family members have served. Each of us can probably remember a family member from years past who has served, most notably being the World Wars, and to that we give honor and remembrance.
Today, November 11th, we give honor to those who have shed their blood, given their lives and whom have put their lives on the line for their fellow man. To those who have served and died in the line of duty since World War I, we salute you and you will always be remembered for your sacrifice. To those who currently and have served, we salute you for being willing to lay your lives in the defense of others.
