Remembrance Day

Post  mtbeerwah on Wed 11 Nov 2015, 1:07 am




My Great Uncle Don, is still alive, and 96, and I can`t be with him today,.
He`s the sole survivor in my family tree, of those that fought for our country.

So to everyone, remember that minute of silence today at 11.00am, for ALL, Australians,
that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Canberra might be thought of as heartless sometimes, but to commemorate the end of 40 years of Vet Affairs residing at Lovett Tower in Woden they have come up with a good way to bring us the message this Remembrance Day....



"A large Remembrance Day poppy will light up the windows of the top floors of Lovett Tower in Woden over the next few days to honour the more than 102,000 Australian service personnel who have died in wars and armed conflicts.
The poppy will be on display every evening until November 12.
Department of Veteran Affairs secretary Simon Lewis said the location of the installation was significant.
For more than 40 years, Veteran Affairs and the Repatriation Commission had served Australia's veterans from its Canberra headquarters in Lovett Tower.
"DVA's headquarters will move to the city in January 2016, so it is fitting that we mark the last official commemoration of the year and the end of an era for the department with a special tribute," he said."

With the business of work, I rarely remember to stop at 11:00 so I go for a walk to a quiet part of the work shop and pause in rememberence.

It's not much but its my way of paying my respects
