    Armistice Day / Veterans Day

    Take time today to remember those who have fought from the Great War to the present day so that we can enjoy the freedom that we take for granted. Many lived through but many paid the ultimate price for us, so just think of that and don't waste we have.

    Alf Philp Sergeant RA 1910 - 2000

    Tom Dimond Stoker RN 1918 - 1940

    Much loved and missed by many

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    A TEAR FOR THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR ALL



    I stand before the WALL with a tear running down my face,







    it reflects the sorrow and pain of the heart.



    As another tear rolls down my cheek it reflects the cold hard







    glare of black stone whose face has a chisel look.



    With the falling of another tear you can see the boyish fun of







    old friends who are no more.



    As I fight to hold back the tears their gentle hands reach out to my







    heart saying we are here for you.



    With there touch my tears say I’m sorry that I came home and that







    you stayed behind.



    As the tears flow I know that the boy I was then is no longer for







    only a man can cry for lost friends.



    For I cry A Tear For Those Who gave Their All.

    Thanks to all the Veterans. My Grandfather was a Lieutenant in World War II and my Great Uncle fought in the Pacific. Having this one day doesn't seem like enough for all they did. Hope everyone has a few minutes today relax with people you love. That's what it's all about anyways.
