This week’s photohunt is Veterans or Military. And a very appropriate choice to start November. November 11th is a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war. In the US, it is Veterans Day; in the UK, Canada, Australia and other countries in the Commonweath of Nation, it is Remembrance Day; in several other countries it is known as Armistice Day.
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, war ceased on the Western Front during World War I. Since that time, many countries have taken time on November 11th to recognize the sacrifices of the soldiers during war.
In my hunt, I came across these pictures from the 4th of July parade in Edmonds.
