Lest We Forget...

Arlington National Cemetery

Below is the Lion Monument in Lucerne, Switzerland.  The monument was hewn in 1820-21 and commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution when the revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris.

  1. Thank you for the look at these monuments I have never seen and will probably never be able to. Thank you for your own service. Barbara

  2. Wonderful tribute and I hope some people paid their respects. many use this as a time for starting summer and miss the point. Even though i am Canadian I hope many in the U.S. respect the day. Our remembrance Day should be made into an official holiday
