Done? Surely you jest. A teardrop is never "done".

Without meaning to be the least bit disrespectful to anyone, surely the commemoration is a bit more sombre than "HAPPY Veterans Day"

My great grandfather was killed in France in 1918 and is buried in Daours War Cemetery. I don't find that HAPPY.

Westy,

Here we have Memorial Day for mourning and remembrance of warriors lost in battle. Veteran's Day is the occasion for happy remembrance of all who have served. Many of us have served, many have lost family. I have nearly 2 dozen family members listed on the Vietnam Memorial (The Wall). I mourn them on Memorial Day, and celebrate their service on Veteran's Day.

If you get a chance to watch "They Shall not grow old". I saw it the other night - VPN to UK and watch on BBC. I am awestruck at what Peter Jackson managed to do with the film footage from the 1911 era. It is worth it ,beyond any stretch of the imagination you are right there in the trenches.
