Resharing from last year… 🙂 My grandfather is still Just as Good … A happy healthy 92… He actually returned with the Canadian Gov’t this year to Dieppe, France to visit the beach where so many Canadians died…. He enjoys reading what people post here on Gplus about this topic. (Yeah he uses the internet pretty good)
I am proud to see it trend here on GPlus (especially after the recent election division in the USA) and am glad people around the world remember so many people who sacrificed for our freedoms.
Reshared post from +Amanda Blain
This is my Grandfather. He is 91 Years old. He still lives on his own and was seen lately fixing the windows in his house, chopping wood and using email to talk to countless people around the world.
He survived Dieppe in France and Years in a World War 2 Prisoner of War camp in Lamsdorf, Germany. His hands were roped and chained from morning to night for over a year. But he Survived. Countless others he fought and lived beside never did. I’ve lived my life growing up hearing his tales and have huge respect for those who died and lived to make sure we have the freedoms we do today.
I hope you remember too. ♥ you Papa and Thank You.
Please feel free to share this…. this is what Nov 11th Is about.

Thank you to all that serve.
God bless the military. They protect or freedom even when people use that freedom to bash them. By the way your Grandpa looks like a boss with all those medals.
Yes I agree, defending freedom is something that each one of us can do on our home front, but to those who put their life on the line for their country , their fellow man….they are our true heros
I respect and admire your Grandfather, but if soldiers don't exist war don't exist to! They make the war and at the end they are also who suffer the most!

You continue to fight every day you get up and accept those challenges in front of you until it's time to pass the flag to others. Keep charging soldier!!!!!
I have the greatest admiration for your grandfather Amanda. I would love to spend several hours asking him questions.
God bless them all…
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Nice to learn about your grandfather. Good evening.
Be happy hes still who he is, I spend most of my days taking care of my 80 year old grandmother, deservedly so, but still.. it'd be nice to have her how she was, ya know? If for nothing more than her own sake.
