We Will Remember Them

Remembrance Day is slightly different over here on a tour of duty in Afghanistan than back home in Canada. The day has always been a priority for my East Coast family as Grampy was a World War II veteran. Today it is particularly close to home to remember those who walked the path close to me and gave their lives hoping for a world of peace.
We will remember them.

    I was at the service with your Grampie and my dad as they sat on the platform together as they have for many years. We certainly remembered you as well and thank you for what you are doing and look forward to having you home very soon!! xo

    As I listened at our Legion the names called their ages jumped out at me as always so young. I too am thankful for the heritage I have! God Bless

    Hi Sweetheart: It is so good to know that you have appreciated your Grampie over the years and always made him feel that his experience in WWII was important to you and that it still is. You are important to us, just to know that you are doing what you can in the field of service. We are soooo proud of you.

    Hi Sweetie
    We had our BYF Breakfast last Tuesday and Janet’s dad talked about his experiences overseas. He did a great job.
    I reminded them in my prayer that the faces of our veterens had changed. The faces were no longer old men but young women and men.
    At every breakfast and every Bible study I ask people to pray for you and all our troops.
    Sean was home for my birthday so he came to the Remebrance Day Service wiyh us.
    You were mentioned in this weeks Vanguard by Zack Churchill.
    Love you, be safe, pray often, Bruce & Sheila

    Hi Ash – so good to read your notes and hear your news. We know you are very busy. Sounds like you had a great time on your “trip”. I recently sent you an email as the blog doesn’t always work for me – we went to the Remembrance Day service at the Mariner’s Centre. We want to thank you and your troop for all you are doing. Pray for you and your troop every day. Love to you all – so proud of you and can hardly wait to “SEE” you.

    Sometimes they can’t even spell simple words like repeat.
    I think I got everything right this time.
    Love you.
