Greetings from Auld Scotia,
Thank you to Dr Don for his fine words on this Memorial Day, but there are no words that can express the thanks we owe to ALL our troops - on both sides of this Ocean that divides us, those who have given their lives, their broken bodies, and those who continue to Serve and protect us.
Throughout the many conflicts, throughout the many years, America and the UK have stood fast. Long may it last and may the BOND never be broken.
Tonight at 2300hrs (local time), myself and many of my former comrades let fly 3 Lanterns into the sky as a symbol of commemoration to Three young comrades brutally murdered by terrorists in another conflict. But more importantly to commemorate ALL our fallen comrades, from Campaigns gone by, to the present day. I raised a solitary glass, 'Deoch slainte nam ban righ, deoch slainte na Gael'
Lest We Forget!
Yours Aye, Jim McKay, Stirling, Scotland.
