A Day To Remember Veterans 2011

in flanders field

Today, November 11th, is when many pause to remember the service that men and women in the armed forces have provided in the service of their country.  Here in the United States the day is marked as Veterans Day and serves to thank those who served.  In other countries such as Canada, the UK, and others the day is known as Remembrance Day in honor of those who fought and died in service to their countries.

Take a moment today not only to reflect about your ancestors and living relatives who gave their service in the armed forces, but consider posting their stories at your genealogy blog.

The latest posts from GeneaBloggers member blogs related to Remembrance Day and Veterans Day are listed below.

  1. Wow! What a tribute! There must be hundreds of posts honoring our veterans. I’ve just spent the past two hours trying to read them and still haven’t made it all the way through. I’m proud and happy that so many people are taking this day to heart.

  2. Reading these amazing posts of tributes one by one, made me cry as to the fact that so many Americans have sacrificed their lives and freedoms so that we could have ours. This makes me so proud to be an American. It is Just so moving emotionally!
