Well said , Jerome.

Your narrative brings to the fore just how great the sacrifices were of those who served and the impact they had on the families and those left behind.

November 11 and the poppies we wear become even more meaningful when one reads posts like yours.

Thank you!

Jerome Martin

Thanks, Bill. I and my family appreciate your note. This Nov. 11 will be just as real and just as sad for us as all the other Remembrance Days have been: and that's the way it should be. We remember.

This is a wonderful photo and narrative Jerome.....I also have a super big picture of Bern but with a different cap on. And those horrible yellow telegrams telling my family of Bern's loss. Plus a fabulous comic strip drawing done by Al. Bern was much beloved by my family here in England during the War; he and Al often stayed with my Nanna and Grandad and my Mum when on leave. Al was also a special friend of theirs. Remembered with love, and thanks for their great sacrifice, by the family of Jim, Mary and Margaret Little - Bern's friends in England. We wear our poppies with pride.
