Lest we forget

As much as I admire the idea of Veterans Day, when it swings around, I always like to put a bit of thought into its predecessor, Armistice Day.

The whole 'at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month' concept and what that meant for a Europe that lost a generation in the trenches.

On this Armistice Day, remember to thank a veteran for his or her service.
