Time for our links on this Veterans’ Day today. By the way, we take this moment to remember all of the fine men and women who have fought on our behalf. This is also Remembrance Day in Canada so we also recognize those who have fought on behalf of our fine neighbors to the north. If you can, take the time to honor those who have represented their country so honorably.
