Because They Earned It

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, and Veterans Day in the United States. It is a day that we all should thank our military personnel of all generations for providing us the freedoms and liberties that we rarely give a second thought to on a day-to-day basis. From the battles waged in Europe during World War I and World War II to the current conflicts happening in the Middle East and Afghanistan, thank you to all the men and women of the Armed Forces who are out there protecting and peace-keeping at this very moment.

Thank you to the veterans who ended an evil regime in Germany before it had the opportunity to do even more evil.

And thank you to all the families and friends of fallen troops. Your sacrifices, while tragic and brutal, helped paved our nations to become leaders in happiness, health, and freedoms.

Today, I want to look back on all the military jerseys that have been featured on this blog. There have been a lot of jerseys that feature tributes to the men and women of the Armed Forces, and I'd like to run through these as a tribute to the brave men and women who have risked their lives for their country in the past, or are risking their lives currently and patriotically.

There are your military-themed jerseys that have been featured on this blog. I'm quite certain that there will be more as well, so I'll keep looking for them. A lot of gorgeous jerseys have been made to honour the men and women of the Canadian and US Armed Forces, and I'm happy to present them here to you.

Again, thank you to all the men and women who have served and who are serving as a member of the Armed Forces. We're all endebted to you for all you've done, and all you will be asked to do.

Lastly, while I'm on the subject of thank-yous, I want to say thank you to Miss Cody K. Cody recently gave me a fabulous hockey trivia book, and I may use some of those questions on here. Thank you for the gift, Cody!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
