A Day to Remember
Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada, and in many other countries around the world.
Every year on November 11, Canadians pause to remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace. We honour those who fought for Canada in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953), as well as those who have served since then. This year is especially poignant, as we also remember the lives of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.
Each year, millions of Canadians wear poppies as a symbol that they will never forget, and to honour those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. You can read more about the poppy and its significance to remembering the war dead here.
