    Armistice Day
    In the 11th Month,
    On the 11th Day,
    At the 11th Hour,
    World War I ended.
    Armistice Day has become Veterans’ Day to honor all our Service Men and Women, past and present. We thank you for your service. ♥

    In Oz, we call this Remembrance Day for the same reason.

    This, appropriately, reminds me of my Grandfather’s service in France as he was gassed at the Battle of Hamil in 1918.
    I’m only able to write this because he survived the experience and returned to Australia where my father was born in 1919.
    I returned to France with my elder brother in 2012 to see the battlefields and attend the Anzac Day dawn service at Villers- Bretonneux.

    And when you look at the War Graves – row on row of tiny white crosses, and see the names carved on monuments and bridges – it breaks your heart. All of those thousands and thousands of young men – many of them still boys. And how many more whose bodies were never recovered? Boys who were blown to pieces, or who still lie below ground in a field or a wood?


    And the others – the ones who came home, but totally broken in body and mind – how many wasted lives.

    Truly heartbreaking. Truly humbling.

    I would include the dreaded shart.

    I’ll pop by Arlington National today to check on some old friends and colleagues. They made the ultimate sacrifice that we may enjoy our funnies in peace.

    Better to pass the gas
    And bear the smell,
    Than hold that fart
    And hurt like hell.

    We should award a shining star to the Blazing Saddles Baked Bean Campfire Crescendo.

    Yes, the War Graves are so serene and peaceful and beautifully maintained but you can’t fail to be touched by the greatness of the tragedy. In Belgium, not far from where McCrae wrote “In Flanders Field”, I saw the grave of a fifteen year old British Rifleman. All I could think of was that my own Grandson would turn fifteen a few weeks later and how much like him, this young man must have been.
    We also saw a new cemetery at Fromelles where the bodies of over 200 Australians, recently recovered, were buried. These men had lain undiscovered for over 90 years but over half of them had been identified using DNA technology.
    In Australia, the emphasis is not on honouring or even showing gratitude but simply remembering. Lest we forget.

    To all those who honored the Vets.
    It is appreciated.
    Having done the duty and came home I find it very sobering to remember those who did not make it.
    I personally know some who did not. One died right next to me. I heard the round that hit him. I asked if he was okay. He said yes. He continued fighting till he bled out. The round enter between his neck and collar bone in the prone position. Took his heart out. The sting of combat kept him going. He never let his brothers down.
    You want to hear a real sobering tale. Listen to Amused to Death by Roger Waters…The Ballard of Bill Hubbard….as one of the last WWI Vets from Britain tells the story of leaving his friend in No Mans Land. Not because he wanted to because his friend asked him to.
    This is an old Vietnam vet here. We never got our Welcome Home. It still hurts a litter but as always time makes the hurt less bad.
    Now if we can only give peace a chance……….
