We have a group of elderly men who come to the cafe at my work every day to have coffee and talk. At least a few are veterans, and one of our baristas bought them their drinks today (we all pitched in, but it was her idea). So sweet.

I took this while doing a cemetery crawl last week. Twin brothers, Revolutionary War Vets, died within weeks of each other in 1783. Sent them a silent thank you.

Canada's fallen soldiers are usually taken west on a highway north of Lake Ontario (CFB Trenton to Toronto). Residents along the way take to overpasses to salute each cortege--very touching to witness. Now highway 401 has signs identifying it as "Highway of Heroes". Hopefully far fewer to salute these days...

Thinking of them this Veterans / Remembrance / Armistice Day:
