In May of this year, visiting Washington, D.C. for the first time, I was particularly moved by this war memorial — The Vietnam Women’s Memorial (dedicated November 11, 1993). It is a tribute to the women who served during the Vietnam War (1956-1975).
Today, we mark the 20th anniversary of the dedication of this memorial.
In Canada, it is Remembrance Day. In the U.S., it is Veterans Day. We remember those who have served; those who have fallen. We give thanks for their service and the sacrifices they have made. We honor them this day — lest we forget.
