Here in the UK, it's called Armistice Day, but like in the US, it's a day for brave heroes past and fallen. I work with several former service personnel and the day was important for them, they were keen for us to observe the two minute silence at the 11th hour. But I also give thanks for all the heroes in the US for being the best allies and brothers an island can ask for. British or American or Commonwealth all the men and women who serve in the forces are heroes. I owe many thanks to those who have done their country proud, past and present. Thanks.
