Those men and women left their jobs, farms, schools to go fight in a foreign land against a devastating evil.

It is somehow reassuring and comforting that the people caught in the middle have, for successive generations, continued to pay their somber respect to those who fell protecting people they had, in all probability, never heard of 12 months earlier .

Lt Col John McCrae was eloquent, during the first time we went to the assistance of Belgium:

"If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep....."

The citizens of this small town, and their children, and their children's children, and their children's children's children, have not broken faith.

Our honored warriors can sleep the sleep of the just and righteous.
