Recognizing all who have served

An item from the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation organization.


Dear Friend,

Today we recognize all who have served in the Armed Forces.  

People of all ages across the nation will honor our veterans in meaningful ways — flying the American flag, asking a veteran about their experience, attending a community Veteran’s Day event, or visiting the gravesite of a fallen veteran.

We join you in thanking and honoring all of those who have served.

Sincerely,

Ramiro

Petaluma Veterans’ Day Parade 2019

Following the Remembrance Day ceremonies at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, CA, the Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25 and the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division participated in the Petaluma Veterans’ Day Parade.

Petaluma proudly hosts the largest Veteran’s Day Parade north of the Golden Gate. The event is dedicated to remembering the men and women who set aside their civilian pursuits to serve our nation’s cause, defending our freedom and preserving American heritage.

Below are some images from the event – almost all of which are taken from various social media postings (click on any image to enlarge).

         

Some video from the event.

Here is a new piece from NBC 7 San Diego that features a group of cadets at the beginning of the clip.

Remembrance Day Ceremony 2019

Each year the Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25 representing the San Francisco Bay area, observes Remembrance Day at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, CA. The 2017 ceremony began around 10:45am and lasted approximately 40 minutes.  As always, our U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division partners participated (and we thank them for their continued support).

Thank A Veteran This Remembrance Day

An item from the There But Not There organization.


Thank A Veteran

Every year, as we remember the anniversary of the end of the First World War, we think of those who have given their lives in service to their country.

This year, we want to also thank those who have fought in more recent conflicts around the globe.

Throughout our campaign, we have worked with Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) who have packaged and posted our Tommies. We will donate your Tommy to a veteran who has worked on the campaign, as a thank you for their service.

If you would like your own Tommy as a mark of Remembrance in your home, or to give as a gift this Christmas, you can still purchase them on our website: 10″ Tommies.

Thank A Veteran Today
The Queen visits RBLI
On 6th November, Her Majesty The Queen visited RBLI to officially open Appleton Lodge, RBLI’s new luxury care facility for veterans and their families. The building has been named after First World War Sister Edith Appleton OBE, who was awarded the Royal Red Cross for nursing on the front line during the Great War.

The care home is part of a new development which, when complete, will provide crucial homes, welfare support and create a community for the country’s most vulnerable veterans.

To commemorate her visit and the beginning of the next phase of the Centenary Village, The Queen laid a time capsule containing, amongst other items, 10 stories of veterans and their families living in RBLI’s existing village and a handwritten letter for future residents from the charity’s chief executive Brigadier Steve Sherry CMG OBE.

The Queen also included a letter which said:

“I wish to congratulate Royal British Legion Industries on their Centenary, and their support of veterans over the past 100 years. Today is a moment of celebration, but also a time of reflection on the sacrifices the Armed Forces make in times of need. I send my warmest best wishes to RBLI and all who support them.”
Remembrance Day 2019
A year after commemorating the centenary of of the end of the First World War, we remember all those who have served.

There have been countless conflicts over the last century and this November, our Tommies bow their heads in remembrance of all of those touched by war.

Today, and always, we remember them.
