It was a privelage and a great honour to be the Parade Commander for Sunday's parade. I have a deep respect and love for the R NFLD R and as the son of a vetern of two wars, I feel it is incumbent on me to participate in Memorial Day and Rembrance Day in any way possible, including as a spectator. As Newfoundlanders, we are among the proudest of our Veterans which makes me so proud to have been born in this beautiful place. David A. Moore, CD.

It is wonderful that NL are continuing to honour our soldiers of Beaumont-Hamel; it brings tears to my eyes, and great respect, pride, and gratitude.. On another note, though, how I wish something could be done to keep the War Memorial just that....a place of respect and honour. But some of our younger generation has seen fit to take it over as a skateboard area and hang-out. Can you just imagine what's going through the minds of our senior veterans, present military, and even citizens and tourists when they see such activities? This is disgraceful.
