So, as most of you know (I should hope) today is Remembrance Day.
I was disappointed this morning to see, when I did my usual facebook check, that NOT ONE of my friends and "friends" had posted a "Lest We Forget" update.

After I had posted mine, seems like everyone felt the guilts that they had forgotten and were reminded by my post, so since 11:11 there has been a slight influx of Remembrance Day posts...

I don't know where the rest of you stand on the idea of war and whatnot, I for one am not a fan of it, but I will still remember our fallen soldiers for what they've done for our country.

My grandfather was a Japanese prisoner of war, at the Changi prison camp (ABC ran a drama on it a while back, was really interesting) He was a priest, and when he was conscripted he refused to bear arms, so the made him a medical orderly. Luckily for him, at the prison camp they needed people to tend the sick/wounded so he worked with the famous Weary Dunlop (You know, that dude on some of the 50c coins) and had a much easier time than a lot of the others because of it.

But yeah, that's a pretty neat video. Would be nice if more soldiers thought like he did, but.. Read some of the comments from other soldiers that have been posted. He's probably, unfortunately, in the minority.
Wow that's an amazing story about your Grandfather.
My Grandfather fought in the Battle of Slaters Knoll on Bougainville Island in WWII but that's about all we know because he doesn't like to talk about it - at all.

Unfortunately, i would agree..

It would be amazing if more people would think like that..

It's good to see that there are people from our generation that care about our diggers.
I can't really say any of my family members served in any war, although my great grandmother was killed by Nazis.

Thanks for sharing your stories, guys happy
