This is a photograph of one of my grandfathers WWII medals and my poppy. He was part of the Canadian armed forces that stormed the beaches of Normandy. For those who don't know, us canadians wear poppy's for the month of November as a show of respect for our fallin and active soldiers. Also today is Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day in the US, so remember to give thanks to those who have served you country. Both the young and old.
