One thought on “Poppy Day

  1. Thank you for this, Jack. I never miss the opportunity to recognize the sacrifices of the many on Remembrance Day. This year, I am attending the service in Redwater once again to support my dear, old friend Peter Nachura, a ninety-four year old veteran who experienced some of the fiercest battles during the liberation of Italy. Lest we forget.
