Armed Forces Day: "Today, thousands of people across the country celebrated the men and women of the Armed Forces, past and present, at more than 300 events to mark the fifth annual Armed Forces Day." I'm a long way off in a hot land but top marks to Cranmer for pointing out that "[Armed Forces Day] will be overlooked by millions who are oblivious, and ignored by millions more who will be aware of it but completely detached from it". His excellent post ends so well:
"Remembrance Sunday is to commemorate the dead: Armed Forces Day is to appreciate the living. Thank them while you can."
