Remembrance Day Message: “I want to take the time to thank those who both served for our freedom and those who still continue to serve for us today. ❤️
Remembrance Day is very near and dear to my heart as I come from a Military Family. Both my great grandfathers served in World War 1, my grandfather was supposed to serve in World War 2 but fell ill, my Father served for the Canadian military, and my brother who continues to serve today in the Royal Canadian Navy” – Allison
Today and always, we honour and remember those who sacrificed so much for our freedom. Lest We Forget.
