All veterans deserve a big pat on the back for having the gumption to have just enlisted. Well done to all of you...and those of us that have served.

Cheers, Vince

My Wife has had her forth grade classes doing Veterans Day programs for Vets for over 15yrs now.
She has her kids sing Patriotic Songs, and do Readings for the Vets, along with personal speeches from selected students.
She always has between 50 and 75 Vets come for the program.
From WWII to the Present.
She told me tonight that she received a thank you from a Vet that came from the Twin Cities.
He congratulated her on not being afraid to let her kids say God as much as they like in their speeches, and all of the songs etc. that mentioned God.
He went on to say the God can not be spoken in the public schools in the Cities.
My Wife even did Red Skelton's old rendition of the Pledge, and even saying that he hoped that God would never be taken out of our Pledge.
She told me that she hopes that she doesn't get into trouble with the use of God in her Veterans Day programs.
I told her that there are times that a person has to stand their ground on moral principles, and if, at anytime in the future, there should be problems our Town would stand behind her 100%
Forest Lake Schools still have the kids say the Pledge of Allegiance before school starts each day.

You know partner, it makes me wonder sometimes. My thinking is that if your wife ever gets into "trouble" for mentioning God and allowing her students to do so, that there's ..what'd you say 50-75 guys a year?...who'd be willing to back her up, and I bet that's 50-75 guys that the people she's in trouble with do not want to f*** with!

Can't believe I missed this post. Sad

Anyways yup a big thanks goes to the veterans who have served and since its Remembrance Day in Canada a big thanks goes out to the ones that didn't make it back home as well. Without them the world would be a different place. Smile

Every single one of those Vets in the audiance are part of a huge wave of people from just about every nationality and religion who have fallen, been carried off the field, helped carry someone off the field or even sent the stretchers to help carry them off the field......To my brothers and sisters who have went before me, served by my side, and continue to serve while I am not....thank you for the freedoms that you have empowered us with, your sacrifice and call to duty allow those children to sing whatever they want and GOD Bless Ely Boy's wife for treating our Vets with the upmost respect.

I have had the distinct pleasure to serve with military members from across the globe..Canadians, Italians, French, Germans, Bangladesh, Great Britain, Australia, Belgian, Saudi, French Foreign Legion (they don't talk much), Hobduran and several African and South American countries - I am definately including these folks in my thanks to Vets.

Vince - I even have Australian Jump Wings (one of your mates kicked me out of a plane and it qualifies me to wear them per the reg's - if you see him, tell him "cheers" for me please - he had an Aussie accent & wore green, should be easy to pin down)

Can't forget our Canadian, British and Austrailian brothers and sisters either. Without their support we would be under one or other dictator's thumb...All have served...

Nemo Me Impune Lacessuit (No one provokes me with impunity)---The Royal Highland Regiment (Black Watch) I've also see the translastion as "attacks or assaults" but I believe provokes is the correct translation. 'Twas my Pa's band of cutthroats is WW2, God Bless 'Em

Gidday Tracker, how ya goin' mate.

Methinks that a very rough literal translation is:
No one Me Unpunished To harass

Another translation (rough) is:
None provokes me unpunished. Wikipedia Approaching more accurate translation

A further translation from the Wikipedia Black Watch entry is:
"No One Assails Me With Impunity".Black Watch

I think that the exact translation or interpretation is pretty much lost in time...well temporarily misplaced...and is dependent on the meaning the individual who actually coined this phrase/motto had at the time.

However, all translations are basically very similar and mean, albeit loosely, the same or similar.

Cheers, Vince
