Lest We Forget

Although the wars they fight in are not always "popular", these brave men and women have chosen to defend, protect and rebuilt.  They deserve our utmost respect.  Everybody has a relative or someone they know affected by war, this should be a global holiday.  I am proud that Edmonton gives such great honor to our Military.

Events: The Cosmopolitan Music Society celebrates Canada’s troops with "Lest We Forget" A Musical Tribute Saturday, November 7, at the Winspear Centre.

On November 11, John McDermott, will be performing his salute with the ESO, songs like Scotland the Brave, Loch Lomond, Danny Boy and My Bonnie.

Hi Derek,
What a nice post. I have such respect for those who fought for us. I read Nancy Wake's biography (she's an Australian war heroine). It was fantastic.

I don't agree with war but that is a luxury that people who have fought have given us. Thank you for remembering them.
