Remembrance Day "lest we forget"

I can't find the ASC Remebrance Day thread to bump it, so I'll post a quick one here.


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae




Let us not forget the all the sacrifice. If you see a soldier, active or veteran, shake their hand, buy them a beer, or just thank them. For their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of their friends and comrades.

I'm not sure if this is correct.


Sous les rouges coquelicots des cimetières flamands,
Qui parmi les rangées de croix bougent dans le vent,
Nous sommes enterrés. Et dans le bleu des cieux,
Les alouettes encore lancent leur cri courageux
Que plus personne n’entend sous le bruit des canons.

Nous sommes morts : il y a à peine quelques jours,
Nous connaissions les joies de la vie, de l’amour,
La fraicheur de l’aurore, les lueurs du ponant.
Maintenant nos corps sans vie reposent en sol flamand.

Nos mains inanimées vous tendent le flambeau :
C’est à vous, à présent, de le tenir bien haut,
De contre l’ennemi reprendre la querelle.
Si vous ne partagez des morts la foi rebelle,
Nos corps ne pourront pas dormir paisiblement
Sous les rouges coquelicots des cimetières flamands.

Being a veteran myself, thank you ! And thank you all ASC members that served and is still serving today in the CF.

I raise my beer to my fallen brothers of arms, remembering the ultimate sacrifice they've made.

ADSUM ! (12RBC regiment).

I'd like to take the time to point out that while we traditionally focus on Canadian and Commonwealth soldiers during rememberance day for obvious reasons, we should remember all soldiers who fought and do fight.

I personally like to remind everyone that though rememberance day is about remembering those who sacrificed their lives, those who fell were not the only ones who gave their lives. Soldiers who chose to serve, sacrifice the opportunity to lead the life most people take hot granted.
It's not only the men and women who fell we must remember but it is those who still stand we must never forget.

Amazing Grace is the song that makes me cry every time. Remembers me my last goodbye and salute to my fallen buddy in A-Stan on the termac

I was a little disappointed with the ceremony here, there was no 21 gun salute, guess with all the cut backs in the forces they couldn't afford the 21 blanks needed.

That's me in the green jacket and black beret.
