Great photos. I should have scanned and shared a pic of my dad today.

Thanks to your family for serving. 2 of my great-grandfathers, my grandfather and a great uncle served in WWI and WWII. Currently my brother-in-law is an active member in the Canadian forces.

Great pictures. Remembrance Day should be a National Holiday.
