Remembrance Day at Fort Meezer

All the veterans that fought for us in the wars all over the world are remembered today.  A national holiday honouring the men and women in the armed services that daily keep us safe and uphold our lifestyle.  

A picture of Grampa Kelly around 1938.  He was about 22.  He married grandma not long before war broke out…like the year before.

Grampa Kelly was in World War 2 and was stationed in England as an instructor to the men going across the channel to Germany to fight.  He sent a picture back to grandma of his barracks after it was bombed.

Thanks, Shoko I’ll take it from here.  Dad wrote that this is his barracks after a Heinkel bird dropped an egg.   Can you imagine living like this, never knowing if your home would be there when you got back?  The thought is terrifying.

You can read more about Germany and the Heinkel Bird here.

We are most fortunate to have these stoic men and women to honour today.
