We held Remembrance Day here today ( it being 11/11) and at 11 a.m. there was silence observed by all.
All you could hear was The Last Post and a minutes silence for ALL men and women past current and Future who gave /give so much for us to live in peace and enjoy freedom. Makes me worry about the citizens of Afghanistan who are starving to death right now.

It's strange, Until recently I have never really considered my service to my country as anything other than a job. But with the upsurge in the publics acknowledgement of military personnel and first responders I realise I played a small part in all that for a total of 34 years. Peace was maintained during the cold war and the streets were safer due to the collective efforts of my colleagues (brothers) and myself and today I find it humbling that people feel the way they do towards us. And I didn't do much at all.

To those who live with trauma and injuries, those who gave their lives it is a privilege to be associated with you, however remotely, you have my utmost respect and admiration.
