Thread Name: WWII Memorial, finally!
Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
That's only when it is Remembrance Sunday - if it is Armistice day, then it should be 11/11. Even Remembrance Sunday gets pushed aside if your patronal saint is Martin of Tours - his feast day is 11/11. Veterans day might be a different sort of day than Armistice day. That's when you think about the dead - veterans, by their very nature are still alive, and should be thought of separately from the dead.
