Remember the Fallen

When one man says to another, "I know what let's do today, let's play the war game."... everybody dies.

A day to remember all those lost to conflict and a hope that one day War really will be confined to a tabletop.

Quote from 'A Bridge Too Far' Gene Hackman as Major General Stanislaw Sosabowski

Not sure if this was in reference to Veteran's Day, but Memorial Day is in remembrance of the fallen for their country. Veteran's Day is to celebrate all who've served.

@Angry, Thank you mate.

@Cheef, uhm?

@Anon, sorry for any confusion. I hail from the other side of the Pond where we Brits observe the 11th Nov as Remembrance Day along with the other Countries of the Commonwealth.
