Lest we forget the price that was paid for our freedom.
Red poppies already adorn many a chest and collar on each side of the border as a lead up to Monday when the U.S. marks Veteran’s Day and Canada observes Remembrance Day. Both occasions mark and honor the difficult sacrifices made by our respective veterans in service to their country. These vintage wartime posters from World War I remind us that the reach and privations of the war that prompted the first Remembrance Day extended, as most wars do, to the home front as well.
