    Yes. I am old enough to have had an uncle serve in that war. Thanks for the reminder. We should never forget. John

    We had a 2 minute silence too.

    11-11-11 is a sad memorial, I know the significance even more having learned modern world history.

    The end of WWI, a fairly major war for American and European powers.

    It's sad because of the ridiculous waste of human lives in the war, on both sides.
