Canadian Veterans' Week: November 5-11, 2010

Veterans Affairs Canada is asking Canadians to honour our soldiers during Veterans' Week 2010 by spreading the word through social media.

"This November, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will come together to mark Veterans' Week.

At hundreds of ceremonies and events, we will remember and recognize the sacrifices and accomplishments of our veterans those of past missions and conflicts, and those who are still returning home today.

So, how will you remember?

Tell us and the world. Leave a comment. Upload a video. Or join us on Facebook, where you'll find tools that let you find, organize and promote events in your community. Share virtual poppies. View photos and videos. Join an online network. And a whole lot more."

It should remain Remembrance Day. I do not support calling it Veteran's Week.

The purpose of Remembrance Day is to remember all who served, who lost their lives, who suffered in wars past. While the focus is naturally on veterans, the sacrifice of war is borne by the whole population.

November 11th is still Remembrance Day. They just brand the preceding week as Veterans' Week. Remembrance Day still exists.
