Thanks Flighty – now I’m going to have my silence.

Talk about a coincidence – I found your post at 10:59, which was a great reminder for what to do next!
VP well timed! xx
Daffy thanks! xx
It is Veteran’s Day here, of which I am. From 1966 to 1972 I had 5 tours in (or around) Vietnam. Just the other day I mentioned this to a couple of teens in a fast-food joint and got nothing but a blank look. “Where’s Vietnam?” one of them asked.
Deyank with it being 40 years ago I’m sure that you wonder where the years have gone since.
It is sad but not really surprising.
Sacrifices never to be forgotten. Thanks, Flighty.
Nikki I’d like to think that we’ve also learnt as well as remembered, although I do wonder at times.
You’re welcome. xx
Yes, I have viewed two of the Flanders Fields blogs, one yesterday and another today.
The poem is a powerful reminder.
Menhir it’s a poem that always gets to me! xx
Peace is very expensive. Freedom belongs only to those who stand up and fight for it.
Don thanks for stopping by, I agree wholeheartedly with your comment!
