This year, during Veterans' Week from November 5 to 11, make remembrance more than something you feel, make it something you do. Show how you remember by attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, visiting the local cenotaph or monument, sharing your thoughts on remembrance online, or wearing a poppy with pride. This Veterans' Week, how will you remember?
