To our fallen soldiers – We remember you.

Remembrance Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_Day

Remembrance Day – also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day (the event it commemorates) or Veterans Day – is a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. It is observed on 11 November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.) The day was specifically dedicated by King George V, on 7 November 1919, to the observance of members of the armed forces who were killed during war; this was possibly done upon the suggestion of Edward George Honey to Wellesley Tudor Pole, who established two ceremonial periods of remembrance

The 401 highway in Ontario has been renamed as the “Highway of Heroes”. It is the route taken by the fallen on their final journey of repatriation. Hundreds of Canadians gather on the roadway and the overpasses to pay their respects as the heroes pass. This video was compiled by our editor, Jim Ducharme and is dedicated to his uncle Wallace, who fought and gave his life in WWII. Wallace now rests near Ortona Italy.
