A Day To Remember Veterans 2009

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.

  1. Thank you for providing this space where we can share our tributes to the fallen.
    I would like to add that the name and traditions associated with the term Remembrance Day extend throughout the countries of the British Commonwealth, so that my fellow Commonwealth Geneabloggers from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand and the Far Orient will be participating.
    I`m not sure whether the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” has significance to Americans, but that is when we will be stopping for our two minutes of silence.
