I don't have a shaving photo, Obie, but while you were shaving I was a hospital corpsman off the coast of Da Nang on the hospital ship USS Sanctuary.

George V, then King of the United Kingdom, who on 7 November 1919, proclaimed "that at the hour when the Armistice came into force, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, there may be for the brief space of two minutes a complete suspension of all our normal activities...so that in perfect stillness, the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead."
Let their ultimate sacrifice not be in vain.

Erik,
I haven't thought of that story in ages. Thanks for the reminder.

In the US, we honor the dead on Memorial day.  Veteran's day is meant to honor everyone who served in the military (alive and dead). 
However, both WWI & WWII were of such an impact to Europe, that Europeans spend nearly an entire week commemorating their military and honoring their dead.  It's not just one day for them.
